Bicentennial Prospectus 

Council heard a report from Dusty Fiedler representing the Bicentennial 
Prospectus Committee. 

OVERVIEW OF THE BICENTENNIAL FUND 

To celebrate 200 years of Presbyter ianism in this country, our denomination 
is conducting this special campaign as an opportunity for sacrificial and 
generous thanks-giving. There are four annual cycles, running between June, 
1988, and May, 1992. The PC(U.S.A.) Goal is $150 million, with a challenge Goal 
of $175 million. 

Salem will participate in the fourth cycle beginning in mid-1991. Our 
churches will be invited to make three year pledges beginning in 1993 when our 
campaign ends. Pledges will be anticipated to be paid up by 1996. 

Salem Presbytery has adopted a goal of $2.65 million going to projects 
presented by the General Assembly, the Synod of the Mid-Atlantic, and Salem 
Presbytery. These will reach toward supporting mission in the four general 
categories : 

* Developing and Revitalizing Congregations, Evangelizing 

* Educating God's People for Service 

* Sharing Compassion, Doing Justice 

* Undergirding Global Mission 

The Salem Bicentennial Prospectus Committee will receive project suggestions 
and recommend as many as we can anticipate funding to the July meeting of 
Presbytery. 

The Bicentennial Fund theme is "TOGETHER SERVING CHRIST". As we participate 
in this campaign, let us celebrate God's grace to us by furthering Christ's 
mission. 



7 



ACTION: 



Presbytery approved the guidelines, criteria and time line for 
submitting projects for the Salem Bicentennial Fund Prospectus. 

GUIDELINES FOR SALEM PRESBYTERY'S PROSPECTUS 

1. To the greatest extent possible, our Presbytery Prospectus should 
be inclusive of the concerns of all constituent groups within the 
Presbytery. Such inclusiveness will further promote and build up 
our visible unity. 

2. Projects included in this Prospectus will recall our rich heritage 
and strong foundation while leading us into our shared future. 

3. Our Prospectus will lead the Presbytery to significant 
accomplishments in these areas: 

* Developing and revitalizing congregations, evangelizing 

* Educating God's people for service 

* Sharing compassion, doing justice 

* Undergirding global mission 

4. The projects must reflect the Book of Order , Form of Government, 
Chapter III (G-3.0000), "The Church and Its Mission", and the 
Mission Statement of Salem Presbytery. 

5. The projects must address major issues in church and society in ways 
that will ordinarily impact many congregations and agencies, not 
just one specific congregation or agency. However, a particular 
agency may be the vehicle for providing broad ministry and mission 
initiatives. 

PROJECT CRITERIA FOR SALEM'S PROSPECTUS 

1. The project has been written and submitted by a Salem Presbytery 
Session, a standing committee of the Presbytery, a recognized group 
of the Presbytery, or Presbytery Staff. 

2. The project cannot now be adequately funded through regular 
congregational, Presbytery, Synod, or General Assembly budgets. 

3. The project has a statement of purpose, objectives with measurable 
results, an anticipated timeline and an effective evaluation process 
outlined, and an initial six-month report (to be administered by the 
submitting group), to the Council of Presbytery. 

4. The project is consistent with the mission and priorities of Salem 
Presbytery. 

5. If the project requires participation by some group other than the 
one submitting the proposal, written concurrence must be obtained. 

6. The project has a sound, realistic financial plan, including a plan 
for assured funding if the project will continue beyond the use of 
BICENTENNIAL FUND campaign receipts.

Appreciation to Steve Pharr 



ACTION: 

The following special Resolution of Appreciation to Steve Pharr for his 
services to the Salem Presbytery was adopted: 

In Grateful Appreciation to the Rev. Steve Pharr 

The Rev. Mr. Steve M. Pharr has for two years given his skilled and 
tireless service to Salem Presbytery as the moderator of a Special 
Disciplinary Committee, as Prosecutor of the resulting Judicial case 
before our Permanent Judicial Commission, and as Salem's counsel on 
appeal before Synod's Permanent Judicial Commission. Mr. Pharr has 
offered his services without remuneration as a part of his commitment 
to his vows as a Minister of the Word and Sacrament. He has labored 
with care and integrity to fulfill the requirements of the Presbyterian 
Church (U.S.A.) Book of Discipline. He has sought with diligence to 
keep his promise to "further the peace, unity, and purity of the 
Church". His faithfulness has been pursued through countless hours of 
work at great personal professional sacrifice. 

Salem Presbytery does hereby express its grateful appreciation to the 
Rev. Steve M. Pharr for his tireless defense of the honor and integrity 
of the Gospel. 

Adopted this 2nd day of February-/ in the year of our Lord, 1991, by 
Salem Presbytery meeting at the First Presbyterian Church, Lexington,

Ethiopian Paintings 

Charles and Marian Cameron of the Pittsboro Church have donated two unique 
Ethiopian paintings to Salem Presbytery which will be on display at upcoming 
meetings (February, March, and April). Their purpose for the gift is to raise 
money to feed hungry people. 

Some fifteen years ago, the Camerons were living in Ethiopia where Charles 
worked for the United Nations. Returning to the United States, they brought 
along two oil paintings they had purchases in a street market from a native 
artist. 

The Camerons have gotten much enjoyment from these unique paintings which depict 
ancient Ethiopian legends from the time of the relationship between Solomon and 
the Queen of Sheba. 

They now wish to share them with new owners while contributing to the fight 
against hunger. 

One canvas is 72" x 31" with two "frames" (each approximately 36" x 31"). The 
other is 36" x 16" with forty-four small "frames" (each approximately 3" x 4"). 
Using vivid colors the artist also includes the fierce serpent which is part of 
the mythology of ancient Ethiopia. 

Sealed donation offers will be accepted from now until the April 23 meeting of 
Presbytery. The paintings will be offered separately and will be available to 
the person making the highest donation offer for each. All donations will go 
to the Pennies for Hunger/Two Cents a Meal program. 



ACTION: 

The Ethiopian paintings were offered through a sealed donation offer 
process and Council was authorized to receive the highest donation offer 
for each painting and apply funds received to the hunger fund. Donation 
offers will be opened at the April 23rd meeting of Presbytery. 



Housing Allowance of Program Staff 



ACTION: 

Presbytery approved the following statement: 

Salary benefits paid to each of the exempt staff include items titled 
"Salary", "Housing", and "Social Security" equivalent. In accordance 
with requirements of the Internal Revenue Service, each ordained clergy 
member of the staff is listed below. Included is the total of those 
three budget items and the portion designated as "housing" for purposes 
of exclusion from the taxable income when used for housing. 



10 



Exempt Staff Total Salary Benefits Housing 

John Handley 53,705 13,000 

Hewon Han 42,240 13,000 

Carter Shelley 42,449 13,000 

Katy Reed 20,139 7,400 



Office Site Committee 



Realizing that currently the physical needs of Salem Presbytery are being 
inadequately met and the need for more permanency in its office location, the 
Office Site Committee reviewed three options: 

1. Continue to rent. Present annual rental cost for 3,000 sq. ft. of 
office space in Clemmons is $25,000. (The Presbytery needs 
approximately 4,500 sq. ft. for its office which would cost at least 
$37, 500 to rent. ) 

2. Purchase land in Clemmons and build a 4,500 sq. ft. office building. 
(Estimated costs would be $370,000 — $100,000 for 2 acres of land plus 
$270,000 building costs @ $60/sq. ft.) 

3. Consider a joint building venture with Clemmons Presbyterian Church. 

The Committee recommends consideration of option #3 for the following reasons: 

Under one roof the new structure would have an area which was separate 
and identifiable for Presbytery offices and an area for Clemmons Church 
activities and ministry. Some space (i.e. classrooms, conference rooms) 
could be shared. 



Building costs would be divided between the parties according to the 
number of square feet allocated to each party or another formula which 
is mutually agreeable. 

Percentage of equity in the new structure would be in proportion to each 
party's relative financial interest in the structure. 

In the future, if Salem Presbytery moved its office from the building, 
the building would be appraised and Clemmons Presbyterian Church would 
be given the first choice for purchase of Salem Presbytery's share of 
the equity in the new structure. 

Clemmons Presbyterian Church and Salem Presbytery would commit to this 
arrangement for a minimum of 15 years and will re-evaluate it 
thereafter. 



The Church and Presbytery will share ongoing operating costs for the new 
structure according to an agreed upon pro rata basis. 



The proposed joint venture provides maximum savings for both parties due 
to shared building costs. It also is a notable model of Property 
Stewardship in which the new structure would be utilized seven days a 
week. 

The estimated savings to Presbytery includes shared architectural fees 
and approximately $100,000 in land costs. Other savings come from the 
fact that a new structure shared by the Presbytery and the Church would 
need one roof, one foundation, one plumbing system, common parking 
areas, etc. 



11 



ACTION: 

a. The following statement was adopted: 

Salem Presbytery expressed its approval of the concept of sharing 
a new building and empowered its Office Site Committee to proceed 
in negotiations with the Session of the Clemmons Presbyterian Church 
exploring the specific details of an agreement between the two 
governing bodies concerning a joint building venture with joint use 
of a facility adequate to serve as a permanent Presbytery Office. 

b. Salem Presbytery authorized its Office Site Committee to join with 
the Building Committee of Clemmons Presbyterian Church to choose an 
architect to draft preliminary sketches and plans. 

c. Salem Presbytery authorized the Council, in consultation with the 
Budget & Finance Committee/ to amend the 1991 Budget to 
provide up to $4,000 for Presbytery's share of the cost of 
preliminary architectural drawings. (This cost will be shared on 
an equal basis with the Clemmons Church. ) 

d. The Office Site Committee was encouraged to submit a proposal to the 
Salem Bicentennial Prospectus Committee for possible inclusion in 
the Salem Prospectus when the campaign begins. (Presbytery will 
vote on which projects should be included and at what amount at its 
July, 1991, meeting.) 



Presbytery Docket 



ACTION: 

Presbytery approved the docket for the February 2, 1991, meeting of 
Salem Presbytery. 



In July, 1990, the Presbytery Budget was reduced by $82,662 to bring in in 
balance with the shortfall in actual benevolence pledged. This reduction 
included a reduction of $14,662 in pledged Synod Benevolence and $23,150 in 
pledged General Assembly Benevolence; this was in addition to action previously 
taken by Presbytery to rescind its previous action of July, 1990, reducing the 
amount allocated in the 1990 budget for General Assembly and Synod and restore 
those amounts fulfilling our pledge and makes the following recommendation to 
Presbytery. 



ACTION: 

Presbytery took $37,812 from the 1990 Presbytery Surplus to restore the 
$14, 662 Synod and $23,150 General Assembly pledged benevolence. 



ACTION: 

Presbytery elected the following persons to serve on the Nominations

Meeting concluding preparations for the Mission Conference held at First Church, 
Greensboro, Saturday, January 26, 1991. 

Included in this report are the following items for your information: 
4e.0b Memorandum of Understanding

4e.3-5 Available Mission Interpreter Volunteers 

In formalizing the International Partnership with Hsinchu Presbytery in Taiwan, 
the Committee presents the attached "Memorandum of Understanding" . 



ACTION: 

Salem Presbytery adopted the "Memorandum of Understanding" in its 
International Partnership with Hsinchu Presbytery (Taiwan) . 



MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING 
PRESBYTERY INTERNATIONAL PARTNERSHIP 

Presbytery: Salem 

Overseas Partner: Hsinchu Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church in Taiwan 
I. BACKGROUND INFORMATION: 

A. Presbytery contact person(s) Address 

Name/Title

Name/Title 

Rev. Andrew I-Shih Tsai 330 No 208, Min Seng Rd.

C. This Partnership grows out of a prior Partnership between Hsinchu 
Presbytery in Taiwan and the former Concord Presbytery in North 
Carolina, from 1986 through 1989. Late in 1989 Hsinchu Presbytery 
extended an invitation to the new Salem Presbytery asking for 
representatives to come to Taiwan at the time of their Presbytery 
meeting in February 1990; they did this with a view to renegotiating 
the Partnership begun with the former Concord Presbytery. The Rev. 
Homer Rickabaugh, Global Mission Staff person, delivered this 
invitation to Salem Presbytery following a visit to Taiwan. 



16 



Salem Presbytery accepted the invitation and sent a delegation to 
Taiwan in February, 1990. The delegation met with representatives of 
Hsinchu Presbytery and mutually confirmed their desire to be partners 
in the service of our Lord. 

D. In April 1990 Salem Presbytery took action to approve in principle the 
desire to enter into a Partnership with Hsinchu Presbytery. Salem 
Presbytery anticipates taking formal action on this Memorandum at

Presbytery attesting to this action will be attached. )

ADMINISTRATIVE SERVICES DIVISION 

PERSONNEL COMMITTEE 
Fred Tat urn, Moderator 

The Personnel Committee has oversight of the Program Staff of Salem Presbytery. 
The Committee is charged with the responsibility to engage in care and support 
of staff, evaluate performance of Exempt Staff, and make recommendations in 
changes in their terms of call. 

The Personnel Committee met January 30, 1991, to conduct an annual performance 
review of Dr. John M. Handley. The review was based upon information gathered 
from selected individuals in Salem Presbytery with specific knowledge of Dr. 
Handley 's work, insights derived from members of the Personnel Committee as a 
result of a harmonious working relationship, insights from staff personel, and 
Dr. Handley 's own personal statement of self evaluation. 

Notwithstanding the enormous responsibilities associated with the position, Dr. 
Handley is an effective administrator who has created a working climate that 
promotes free dialogue and cooperation among the staff resulting in an efficient 
utilization of talents and skills. Additionally, Dr. Handley is perceived to be 
an individual who is creative, knowledgeable, supportive, and sensitive to the 
needs of others, and readily offers his assistance to pastors, sessions, 
congregations, and other groups within the Presbytery. He strives to serve as 
a bridge to get people, churches, and specific interests in touch with each 
other. Dr. Handley is viewed as a positive role model by many. 



19 



The Rev. Carter Shelley, Associate Presbyter for Care and Development of 
Leadership, has advised the Personnel Committee that she is doing well and 
eagerly awaits the time to return to work on February 15, 1991. 



ACTIONS : 



1. Presbytery commended Dr. John M. Handley, Executive 
Presbytery/Stated Clerk for his job performance during the past 
year, and offered a prayer of thanksgiving and intercession be 
offered for him at an appropriate time during the meeting. 

2. Presbytery offered a prayer of thanksgiving and intercession and 
healing for the Rev. Carter Shelley, Associate Presbyter for 
Care and Development of Leadership. 

3. Presbytery granted Program Staff in Presbytery's Office a 4 1/2% 
salary increase based on the anniversary date of their 
employment and prorated to begin January 1, 1991, which is 
reflected in the following amounts included in the 1991 budget: 



1991 Budget. Budget Preparation and Financial Oversight are among the primary 
functions of the Budget and Finance Committee. Therefore, we present the 1991 
Proposed Budget for your consideration and approval. This budget is the result 
of a budget building process which included program and budget hearings. The 
budget has been thoughtfully prepared and approved by both the Budget and Finance 
Committee and the Presbytery Council. It is believed to be a realistic and 
balanced budget. The proposed budget represents a 4.3% increase over the 1990 
budget . 

1991 Asking and Acceptances. Churches in the Presbytery were asked to consider 
increasing their giving by at least 3% over the 1990 pledge, or to increase their 
pledge to the average level of giving among churches of similar size. Churches 
responding to this request will generate a little more than $2,000,000 in 
anticipated receipts in 1991. 

As of January 25, 84 churches asked for §911,404 have accepted $880,670. 
72 churches asked for $1,197,887 have not responded. The total amount of 
the acceptances and asking of churches which have not responded is 
$2,078,557. 

1990 Financial Update. In 1990 the Presbytery received a total of $974,210 for 
its general operations and expended $960,004.65, recording a surplus of 
$14,204.90. The surplus was due primarily to Church Development Division 
expending only $154,221.29 of the $214,291 allocated. Additionally, $55,600 was 
received after January 15, 1991 and the closing of Presbytery Books. This 
represents a surplus of $69,799 in 1990 funds. 

1992 Budget Preparation. Many Churches in our Presbytery are finding it 
increasingly difficult to respond to our Benevolence Requests due to the lateness 
in which we are currently projecting proposed budgets for upcoming years. Many 
of our churches begin budget preparation in late summer and early fall, and it 
would be extremely helpful to have Presbytery's Asking available during this 
period. To accommodate the needs of our churches, we propose changing the 
presbytery preparation schedule from fall/winter to spring/ summer.

CHURCH DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE 
Steve Hundley, Moderator 

The work of the Church Development Committee can be divided into three 
categories — Church Development (strengthening and supporting struggling 
churches); Church Redevelopment; and New Church Development. Most of the work 
of this committee the past year can be considered "Reactive" . The word 
"Reactive" refers to requests which demand our immediate attention. Such 
requests have and continue to be in the areas of: 

-physical improvement 

-damaged and worn out physical plants 

-building new churches and structures to replace old ones 



22 



During the past twelve months we have approved more than $340,000 in loans and 
allocated over $37,000 in grants for churches in our Presbytery. No matter what 
the request, we hope to assist each church redevelop or enhance their ministry 
along with changes in their physical plants. 

We were disappointed in the disapproval of the site selected for the Korean 
First Presbyterian Church in Greensboro. We are presently searching for a new 
site, and hopefully within the next few weeks we will be able to announce a new 
site on which this church can build. 

The Glendale Springs Church, is a small church with 52 members located in the 
mountain area of North Carolina. The church shares the services of its minister 
with another small church in the area. This church has an active youth 
fellowship and recently started a "singles and singles again" ministry. It 
reaches out to the committee with an open invitation to participate in its 
services. The church recently lost the furnace in its fellowship hall, 
curtailing all of its weekday activities. Replacement cost is $3,500. 

Trinity Presbyterian Church, Winston-Salem, NC, is a small church with 106 
members. Recently, the church acquired the services of a new minister who 
serves, also, the Winston-Salem area colleges in their campus ministry programs. 
Much excitement has already been generated in the accomplishments of this 
working relationship. This church sustained great damage during the May '89 
tornadoes and recently discovered asbestos which must removed. 



ACTIONS : 

1. Presbytery approved a loan in the amount of $2,000 and a grant in 
the amount of $1,500 to the Glendale Springs Church. 

2. Presbytery approved a grant in the amount of $7,500 and a loan in 
the amount of $13,500 to Trinity Church. Loan repayments to begin 
at the end of the current loan pay-off in 1992. 

3. The Presbytery authorized the working out of details of the above 
mentioned loans by the Budget and Finance Committee. 



CHURCH IN THE WORLD DIVISION 



SOCIAL JUSTICE ISSUES COMMITTEE 
Mary Boyd Click, Moderator 

Council has called a meeting of Presbytery on March 2 for the two-fold purpose 
of hearing an Issues Update Presentation on Human Sexuality, arranged by the 
Social Justice Issues Committee, and for the purpose of voting on the 
constitutional amendments that require our attention. 

During the morning session we will hear two presentations from members of the 
General Assembly Special Task Force on Human Sexuality. They are Dr Elizabeth 
Johnson and Dr. Marvin Ellison. Many people have said that the most important 
issue in the church today concerns human sexuality. The Task Force's report to 
the 1991 Assembly is already receiving publicity. Dr. Johnson will address the 
question "WHAT CAN WE GET FROM THE BIBLE TO HELP DS MAKE DECISIONS ABOUT HUMAN 
SEXUALITY IN THE 1990 'S?" Dr. Ellison will address "HUMAN SEXUALITY ISSUES IN 
THE 1990 'S." We are fortunate to hear from these persons who have devoted so 
much time and thought to this sensitive issue. 

After the presentations the presbytery will divide into small groups for 
discussion and reflection. We will reconvene for a brief worship session before 
lunch.

constitutional amendments passed onto us from the General Assembly.

EXAMINATIONS COMMITTEE 
Edwin C. Brammer, Jr., Moderator 



RECEPTION OF SUSAN MACDONALD RODDEY 



ACTION: 

Presbytery proceeded with the examination of candidate Susan MacDonald 

24 



Roddey. She has passed the General Assembly standard exams, received 
a diploma from an accredited theological school, and has been examined 
and approved by the Examinations Committee of Presbytery. 

Presbytery approved the committee and floor examination and sermon of 
Susan MacDonald Roddey. 

a. Susan MacDonald Roddey was received and will be ordained by Salem 
Presbytery so that she may accept the position of Interim Associate 
Minister at the Graham Presbyterian Church of Graham, NC. Susan is 
a graduate of Davidson College and Princeton Theological Seminary. 
She lives with her husband in Winston-Salem. 

Her credo which follows was approved. 

I have faith in God who is immanent in humankind, in the church 
and in the supreme revelation given to us in Jesus Christ. My 
belief in God's providence is one of the foundations of my faith. 
This belief rests upon the revelation of God's creative love in the 
history of Israel and in Jesus Christ, whose life, death and 
resurrection assured us of God's ever-active, redeeming presence in 
and beyond history, working God's purpose out. I also believe that 
the immanence of God is equally matched by the transcendence of God, 
who can never be categorized, reasoned, or completely understood by 
our human experience. 

As Jesus Christ taught us, I have faith that God 
loves us with the merciful love of a Parent. Isaiah affirmed that 
God loves us as a Mother who comforts weary, confused children - in 
this I believe. Christ affirms that God loves us as a Father, 
welcoming home a prodigal child with open, forgiving arms - in this 
I believe. 

I have faith that God is Creator of all, yet much of what has 
been created has been corrupted by the sinfulness of humankind. 
Humans are alienated from God when our own selfish ambitions and 
goals cause us to create our own gods which we worship. Thus, our 
relationships with one another and God are broken, and we exploit 
everything around us for our own purposes. However, I believe that 
through Jesus Christ, God established a new covenant with us - one 
based on grace, whereby if we truly repent of our sins we are 
forgiven of our sinfulness and restored to a right relationship with 
God and one another. Jesus was the incarnation of God of mercy 
through whom we are healed of our brokenness. As a human, Jesus 
felt our pain and joy and was tempted by all which we are. As the 
unique incarnation of God, he was able to withstand these 
temptations and remain in perfect obedience to God's will. Because 
of our sinfulness he suffered and died on the cross, yet hope is 
given to us by his resurrection that God's presence will be with 
those who have faith always, and that death is conquered in the new 
life promised to us. 

I have faith in the Holy Spirit which is the ever-active 
presence of God working in our lives and communities. I believe 
that the Spirit is the unifying power of the will of God working 
through responsive humans to restore a community and faith based in 
love and hope. It is the healing presence of Jesus Christ which 
has been promised to be with us eternally. I believe in the church 
as an institution full of the potentiality and actuality of being 
a restorative community of faith. The church has the power as the 
active body of Christ to seek to accomplish the will of God in 
relations with themselves and the world. It is a body which 
celebrates the diversity of God's creation, and the unity in this 
diversity caused by the working of the Holy Spirit. 

I believe that the scripture are the witness of the activity 
of God in the world, specifically with the people Israel and through 
the Lord Jesus Christ. The scriptures were written by humans, who 
were inspired by the presence of God in their communities and lives, 



and some of whom bore witness to the presence and spirit of Christ. 
Through the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we dare to listen for the 
Word of God for our age. 

I believe that the sacraments are visible signs of the grace 
of God within the body of Christ. Baptism is a one time sign of the 
new consecrated life in the body of Christ offered to us entirely 
as a gift of grace, even while we may still be babes. The Lord's 
Supper is the sign of Christ's continuing presence with us as we 
participate together with other members of Christ's body, in the 
breaking of bread and drinking of the cup. Through this we are 
reminded of his death on the cross that he suffered for our 
redemption. In addition, we are reminded of our unity as the one 
body of Christ with the church worldwide. 

I have faith that God in three persons is ever offering fresh 
hope from the brokenness of the world. Humans have the command and 
responsibility to respond to this merciful offer and gift. The 
kingdom of God is created on earth through the power of the Holy 
Spirit who empowers us to choose life and not death - to choose to 
live in the presence of God and witness the strength of this life 
and faith to others as Christ did to us. 

c. The following Administrative Commission was appointed to Ordain Mrs. 
Roddey on February 24, 1991, at 3:00 p.m. at the Graham Presbyterian 
Church.

RECEPTION OF ETHEL CHAFFIN SIMONETTI 



ACTION: 

Presbytery proceeded with the examination of candidate Ethel Chaffin 
Simonetti. She has passed the General Assembly Standard Exams, received 
a diploma from an accredited theological school, and has been examined 
by the Examinations Committee of Presbytery. 

Presbytery approved the committee and floor examination and sermon of 
Ethel Chaffin Simonetti. 

a. Ethel Chaffin Simonetti was received and will be ordained by Salem 
Presbytery so that she may accept the Call as Pastor of the Dogwood 
Acres Presbyterian Church of Asheboro. The Terms of Call are based 
on three quarter time. Ethel is a candidate under care of New Hope 
Presbytery. She is a graduate of Duke Divinity School, Randolph- 
Macon Women's College, and the University of Georgia. Most recently 
she has served as lay associate in the First Presbyterian Church of 
Durham, NC. The effective date of this Call is January 4, 1991. 



26 



Ms. Simonetti's credo which follows, was approved. 



My self knows who she is as a child of God. At the core of my 
being, the divine spark of God-consciousness keeps me questing after 
truth, and seeking union with my Creator. Through Holy Scripture, 
I know Whose I am. I belong to the timeless, all-knowing, all- 
powerful, all-loving God Who is, at once, my parent, my brother, and 
my spiritual empowerment. By the mystery of the triune God — 
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit — offered to all humanity in holy 
Covenant, I see that God claims me, shepherds me, instructs me, 
sustains me, and redeems me. As a sinner who fails to use all her 
gifts and energies to God's glory and aims, I yet find endless 
second chances for wholeness, unity, and perfect freedom, by God's 
grace . 

My response to God's lovingkindness is through the Church, 
which God called into being as the context of our search for 
ultimate meaning and as the wellspring of our Christian mandates. 
As a witness of Jesus Christ, I participate liturgically in the life 
and death of our Lord Who saved the world from death by sin. The 
thrust of justice in Jesus' teaching and action prompts me, as well, 
to acts of service, voluntarism, advocacy, and evangelism — for His 
name's sake. Choosing the Presbyterian way of being with others in 
the Body of Christ, I am responsible to my Lord and God through a 
unique polity which fosters mutual accountability within the 
gathered community. 

Remembering the passion and death of Christ through the 
corporate reenactment of the Lord's Supper, I find sacramental Holy 
Communion with God, other disciples, and the saints. Celebrating 
new life through the institution of Baptism, I grasp my 
connectedness to all of creation, and find spiritual rebirth in the 
family of God. Relying on the Holy Spirit to inform my public 
witness, I can tap my strengths and turn in my weaknesses. 
Accepting God's infinite invitation to a mortal pilgrimage of 
faithfulness and striving, I dare to trust in God's promise of 
eternal life. 

My part in the reign of God calls me prayerfully to follow the 
lessons of Holy Scripture in my daily life. Interpreting the Creeds 
and Confessions of God's Holy Church through the "spectacles of 
Scripture" John Calvin would have believers wear, I see God's 
triumph in the claiming of all persons of every description, from 
all places, and in all walks of life as God's own. I see God's 
majesty in the encouragement of all facets of the universe towards 
harmony and interdependence. I see God enthroned not in splendor, 
but emanating throughout time and space, stooping low to reveal 
inequities and mercy, and lifting high the cross of

RECEPTION OF ROBERT R. TOLAR, JR. 



ACTION: 



Presbytery proceeded with the examination of candidate Robert R. Tolar, 
Jr.. He has passed the General Assembly Standard Exams, received a 
diploma from an accredited theological school, and has been examined by 
the Exminations Committee of Presbytery. 

Presbytery approved the committee and floor examination and sermon of 
Robert R. Tolar, Jr.. 

a. Robert Richard Tolar, Jr., was received and will be ordained by 
Salem Presbytery so that he may accept the Call of the First 
Presbyterian Church of Asheboro to be their Associate Minister. 
Robert is a graduate of Marshall University in Huntington, WV with 
both a B.A. and M.A. in Counseling. He has, as of December 1990, 
a M.Div. from Union Theological Seminary in Richmond, VA. Roger's 
wife, Paige, is also accepting the job of DCE at First, Asheboro. 
The effective date of this Call is January 15, 1991. 

b. His credo which follows, was approved. 

I believe in God Almighty, maker of heaven and earth. This one, 
true God has revealed Godself in three distinct persons: Father, 
Son and Holy Spirit. There are not three gods, but three persons; 
eternal and equal, inseparable and without confusion, and divine in 
nature. This "one" God is worthy of our praise. 

Father God is a loving God calling us to care for all creation. 
God created us as human beings to live in community and to respond 
in obedience. Our God is also gracious, offering the ultimate gift, 
forgiveness of sin through Jesus Christ. Son Jesus Christ came to 
this earth to seek and save the lost. In his life and death, God's 
redeeming love was made known; in his resurrection there is the 
assurance of God's victory over sin and death and the promise of 
God's continuing presence in the world. Jesus Christ is present in 
my life. I cj-aim him fully as my Lord and Savior 1 Holy Though the 
power of the Holy Spirit, God's Spirit guiding and reconciling 
activities in the world continue. With this Spirit we gain 
empowerment and actively experience God in our lives. 

All power in heaven and on earth is given to Jesus Christ. God 
has placed all things under the Lordship of Jesus and made him the 
head of the church. Christ gives the church its faith, life, unity 
and mission. The mission of the church is to tell the world about 
the good news of salvation to be found through faith in Jesus Christ 



28 



as Lord and Savior. The church is called to a practical ministry; 
feeding the hungry, loving the outcasts, spiritual strengthening, 
guiding persons in daily struggles of life... we are simply called 
to serve 1 

I confess the Scriptures to be the Word of God written, 
witnessing to God's authority. The actual words were written by 
human hands. But, these words were inspired by God and are thus 
able to enlighten and instruct humankind, through the Spirit, about 
God. 

I believe in two Sacraments, Baptism and the Lord's Supper. 
Both are God's acts of sealing the promises of faith within the 
community of faith. Baptism is a sign and seal of God's grace in 
the recognition of Christian commitment. Baptism is a covenant 
between God, the person being baptized, the parent (s) and the 
church. Lord's Supper: we remember and are renewed by the memory 
of Christ's life, death, resurrection and promise to return. The 
church gives thanks for all God has done and all that will be done. 
The people are sealed in God's covenant of grace through this 
partaking of Christ's self-offering. 

I hold true to the central points of the Reformed tradition in 
that they guide my perspective on faith: sovereignty of God, 
election, stewardship and obedience 

Presbytery approved the establishment of an Associate Pastor 
relationship between Mr. Tolar and the First Presbyterian Church of

RECEPTION OF GEORGE H. MURRAY, IV 



ACTION: . _ 

Presbytery approved the committee and floor examination of George H. 
Murray, IV in accordance with Book of Order G-11.0402. 

a. The Reverend George Henry Murray, IV, was received from New Hope 
Presbytery so that he may accept the Call of the Kernersville First 
Presbyterian Church of Kernersville, North Carolina. George is a 
graduate of Belhaven College and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School 
of Deerfield, IL. He also has a Th.M from Duke Divinity School. 
He is presently serving the Wacona Presbyterian Church of 
Washington, NC. The effective date of this Call is December 1, 
1990. 

b. His credo which follows, was approved. 

I believe in one living and true God, the Creator, Sustainer, 
and Ruler of all that exists, "whom alone we must serve, whom only 
we must worship, and in whom alone we must put our trust." (Scots 
Confession, 3.01) He is eternally existing as one God, yet distinct 
in three persons — Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. This existence is 
indeed a mystery that I cannot fully understand, yet God has 
revealed himself to me as the Father whose love, power, and wisdom 
are infinite; as the Son whose life, death, and resurrection secure 
for me a righteousness that is not my own, a reconciliation that I 
could not negotiate, and an adoption that is eternal; and, as the 
Holy Spirit who sought me, conforms me to God's image, and empowers 
me to accomplish His will. 

I believe that the above is true through a personal 
relationship with the living Word, Jesus Christ ,".. .God of God, 
Light of Light; Very God of Very God...;Who for us men, and for our 
salvation, came down from heaven; And was incarnate by the Holy 
Spirit of the Virgin Mary...." (Nicene Creed) Jesus in his living, 
dying, and living again supremely reveals to all humanity God's 
nature and will. Everything that Jesus said and did was a means of 
communicating his personal testimony concerning the nature and 
character of God. He died on the cross and shed his blood as an 
atonement for the sins of men and women. After three days in the 
tomb, He was resurrected, opening the door of death for the 
continuation of life. Jesus Christ is the assurance of God's 
victory over^tin and death. He ascended into heaven and will return 
personally, according to his promise. 

Our relationship with God was initiated (regeneration) and is 
nurtured ( sanctif ication) by the Holy Spirit "whom we confess to be 
God, equal with the Father and with his Son, who sanctifies us, and 
brings us into all truth by his own working...." (Scots 
Confession, 3.12) He dwells in all believers, uniting us together 
and uniting us to Christ. He calls and anoints people for 
particular ministries in the Church, the Body of Christ, providing 
spiritual gifts that we, Christ's body, might "no longer be infants" 
but that we might "grow up" into Christ our Head. 

As Jesus is the living Word, so I believe that Scripture is the 
written Word of God. Scripture is "God-breathed" and therefore 
represents exactly what God wanted to communicate to us. It is the 
Divine and final authority for Christian faith and life. The Holy 
Scriptures are not meant to be worshipped but rather to reveal the 
God we are to worship, and only the Holy Spirit can cause the 
teaching of the Word of God to grip our hearts and change our lives. 
This Word of God invites us to trust him, to receive him, and to 
apply to our lives his revealed will. Because of this, faithful 
biblical preaching is of the utmost importance in the life of the 
Church. 



30 



I believe that the Church consists of those regenerated and 
sustained by the power of the Holy Spirit. The Church shall order 
its life in ways that demonstrate its faithfulness to God's eternal 
purpose for the world; expressing itself in worship, the Sacraments, 
fellowship, evangelism and service. 

I believe that our Christian life should be one of growing 
closer to God each day of our lives, counting the costs, "laying 
aside the sin which so easily entangles us," and following the Lord 
— not out of a mere sense of duty but out of gratitude and praise 
for what has been done for us. When we understand that this is 
God's desire for us, as individuals and as a community, then we will 
be witnesses of God's grace to a lost world that desperately needs 
him. We will announce the Gospel, heal the sick, feed the poor, and 
proclaim justice and righteousness. 

I believe that God is in control of history. His promises are 
sure. In Christ is our hope — both now and forever. It is Christ 
who shall end history when he fulfills his promise to personally 
come again. For many it will be a day of wrath, but for those in 
Christ it will mean forever being with the Lord. As we wait for 
that day, we are not to be idle but are to continue the Church's 
mission to glorify our Savior and Lord.

RECEPTION OF RICHARD S. WURST, JR. 



ACTION: 

Presbytery approved the committee and floor examination of Richard S. 
Wurst, Jr. in accordance with Book of Order G-11.0402. 

a. The Richard (Rick) Wurst, Jr., was received from Southern New 
England Presbytery so that he may accept the Call as pastor of the 
Stony Creek Presbyterian Church of Burlington, NC. Rick is 
presently associate pastor of the First Presbyterian Church of New 
Canaan, CT. He is a graduate of Union Theological Seminary in 
Richmond and Wake Forest University. The effective date of this 
Call is November 18, 1990. 

b. His credo which follows, was approved. 

I believe in God: creator of the universe, sustainer of life, 
judge of creation, and redeemer of all that is touched with human 
sinfulness. This God, whose ancient name is Yahweh, designed the 
heavens and the earth and the laws which govern them. Humanity is 
part of God's good creation and the essence of human beings is the 
image of God which we were made. 

There is, however, another aspect to being human — 
rebelliousness. Like Cain, who wore a mark on his forehead, we all 
carry the effects of our rebellion against God. But God has chosen 
to forgive us of our sins and restore us to wholeness. For Cain, 
God's mark became his salvation; in the same way, God's grace 
becomes our salvation. 

For this purpose God sent a redeemer into the world. Whose 
name was Jesus. Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, who is present 
from the beginning of time until the end. During his life on earth 
Jesus faced the same temptations, struggled with doubts, evil, wrong 
doing, and injustice just as we, for he was fully human. Yet he was 
unique. He did not live in rebellion. Bearing the grace of God 
from birth he was able to live so that he neither disobeyed God nor 
damaged another human being. A victim of evil not his own, Jesus 
was crucified to atone for the sins of the world. With his birth, 
life, death and resurrection Jesus took the form of human flesh and 
bore the pain, confusion and sin of this world in his body in order 
to proclaim God's tremendous love for all the world. In the life 
and death of Jesus, God has acted to reveal the love and power which 
restores- sffiful humanity to wholeness and a right relationship with 
God. 

Before his death, Jesus explained to his disciples that his 
work of preaching, teaching, healing and calling followers would 
continue. They would become Christ's representatives on earth and 
carry out the ministries Jesus began. For this purpose the Church 
was called into being and continues her ministry with us. Today, 
we the redeemed are called to preach the gospel, work towards the 
restoration of wholeness for individuals and communities, and teach 
the judgment and love of God. In order for there to be power and 
authority in what the Church does, God has sent the Holy spirit to 
live among us. The Spirit is the presence and power of Christ among 
God's people on earth. 

After his death, God raised Jesus from the dead to everlasting 
life. In-his place, the Holy Spirit abides with all God's people 
on earth. The Spirit gives the gift of faith to all who will 
receive it. We are saved by grace through faith. Grace gives us 
the ability to see the reality of our own sinfulness and God's 
forgiveness; faith gives us the ability to believe in God's love. 

During his life, Jesus instituted the Sacraments for the 
benefit of the church. In the Presbyterian Church we celebrate two 
Sacraments: Baptism and the Lord's Supper. Sacraments symbolize 



32 



sacred truths: the priesthood of all believers, the faithfulness 
of God's love, Jesus submission to God's will and the need for our 
own careful nurturing of each other. Breaking bread and taking 
nourishment as a family in the Eucharist represents the deep love 
and support of God. As we partake of the bread and wine Christ is 
present and power to all who believe and repent of their sins. 
Christ is also present in power at Baptism, the signal of one's 
entrance into the Covenant community. Baptism is the sign and seal 
of God's steadfast love for us through the shedding of Christ's 
blood. Baptism also represents the dying of the self and the rising 
anew with Christ to eternal life. 

God has created a Covenant with people of many times and 
places. We are called to go out into the world as a part of this 
Covenant community proclaiming God's love for the people of this 
earth. God has given us the Scriptures in order to learn about God 
and to teach about God. These scriptures (the Old and New 
Testaments) are ancient teachings inspired by the Holy Spirit. They 
tell how God acts to meet the needs of people in pain, loss, doubt, 
despair, and sin. God is uniquely revealed to us by the Holy Spirit 
in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ as recorded in 
the Scriptures. 

We know love because God has first loved us; God's love is 
unfailing and unending. I believe the promise that God has the 
ultimate victory over sin and death, and that God will restore us 
to wholeness, both individually and corporately.

RECEPTION OF JAMES A. MITCHAM 



ACTION: 

Presbytery approved the committee and floor examination of James A. 
Mitcham in accordance with Book of Order G-11.0402. 

a. The Reverend James Mitcham was received from Detroit Presbytery. 
Rev. Mitcham is honorably retired and living in Winston-Salem, NC. 

b. His credo which follows, was approved. 

I believe in God the Father Almighty maker of heaven and earth. 
There is no higher intelligence than God, the creator. Try as 
humans have done — the intellectual limit has reached its apex 
attempting to breathe into his robots' nostrils the breath of life 
"and man became a living soul." Thus, human life, nature, the birds 
in their flights can only be described, but never created. God's 
will alone has the power to choose the times and places any form of 
life shall exist. No person can boast of such creative power. 

I believe that God in his chosen time sent His son, Jesus 
Christ into the world. Seeing the sin of humankind, and its innate 
inability to save itself from destruction, God made a way through 
Christ for the believing person to have the offer of salvation and 
redemption. Jesus entered the world, fully human and fully divine, 
to share an earthly life with his chosen followers, demonstrating 
how the love of God can exist between human beings even the least 
of those in the kingdom. Through His teaching, and healing 
miracles, parables of the kingdom, Jesus opened the way to God. He 
gave His earthly life as a sacrifice for the sin of the world. He 
came as a redeemer to save without losing himself. Through his 
obedience to the will of His loving Father, He was raised from the 
grave in the resurrection and ascended to God. 

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the gift of God who is the 
comforter, living the world today. The church is the gathering of 
women and men where learning of God's creative power of love, grown 
in fellowship with one another. I believe in the Bible, the 
inspired word of God spoken to any who accepts in faith, in its many 
translations to the church and God's people. No matter what the 
form or structure of the church, Jesus Christ is still the head of 
the church. Through the Holy Spirit all human effort is superseded 
by the will of God unifying the church and cleansing it. 

I believe in the power of Jesus Christ present in the Sacrament 
of Baptism and Holy Communion. God speaks to the celebrant, worship 
of water, bread and wine, all expressing our membership in the body 
of Christ and remembrance of His sacrifice for our sakes. 

I believe that sin is a reality, that evil permeates the life 
of the world as well as the common good. Thus, the challenge facing 
the church and the Christian community is to overcome the fallacy 
that the power of evil can overcome the power of God. Ultimately, 
Jesus will reclaim his people and the kingdom on earth will prevail. 

c. Mr. Mitcham was instructed to sign the obligations required of a 
minister to be enrolled in presbytery.

RECEPTION OF CHRISTOPHER E. ZORN 



ACTION: 

Presbytery approved the committee and floor examination of Christopher 
E. Zorn in accordance with Book of Order G-11.0402. 

a. The Reverend Christopher Edward Zorn was received from Western 
Carolina Presbytery so that he may accept the Call of pastor at the 
John Calvin Presbyterian Church of Salisbury. Chris is presently 
pastor of the Sherrills Ford Presbyterian Church of Sherrills Fords, 
NC. The effective date is January 20, 1991. 

b. His credo which follows, was approved: 

I believe there is one God eternally existent in three persons: 
Father, Son and Holy Spirit. I believe that the Lord Jesus Christ 
is fully God and fully human. I believe in His virgin birth, in His 
sinless life, in His miracles, in His atoning death for our sins, 
in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of 
the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory. I 
believe in the work of the Holy Spirit who softens the hearts of the 
unbelievers and draws them to repentance and faith in Jesus Christ. 
I believe that a person is saved by the sovereign work of God and 
by God's grace through a simply child-like faith or trust in Jesus 
Christ and Him alone. I believe that a person's greatest need is 
to know Christ as Lord and Saviour. 

God is revealed to humankind through creation, through the 
Spirit, and through the person of Christ. God is especially 
revealed through the Scripture, which are the Word of God. I 
believe the Scriptures to be by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, 
the unique and ultimate authoritative witness to Jesus Christ. I 
believe the Scriptures are authoritative in all that they teach 
concerning faith and practice for the Christian life. 

I believe the Sacraments were instituted by Christ and are the 
signs and seals of the blessing of God. These sacraments are 
outward signs of the inward experience of God's grace. They provide 
a means whereby we reaffirm our status as Christians set apart unto 
Christ. God has given these means of grace in conjunction with faith 
and the Word of God for the upbuilding of the body of Christ on the 
earth. 

The Church consists of all who profess faith in Jesus Christ, 
and is in its every essence connectional. We are connected to 
Christ as the Head of the Church, and to the various members of the 
Church as His body. The Church, as the body of Christ, exists under 
Christ's Lordship, proclaiming to a fallen world through its word 
and deed the hope that is the gospel. 

As a pastor I see myself as under the authority of Scriptures, 
guided by our confessions, and governed by our Church's polity and 
discipline. I believe in the priesthood of all believers which our 
representative church government expresses. The connectional nature 
of our Church, the appreciation for orderliness in polity and 
worship, and the affirmation of the priesthood of all believers are 
central elements in my understanding of ministry. 

In sum, I believe that God's love has been clearly shown in 
Jesus Christ and that it is God's will that all people be saved. 
Our responsibility as ambassadors of God's love is to proclaim this 
Good News in word and deed to all the world. 

c. Presbytery approved the establishment of a Pastoral relationship 
between Mr. Zorn and the John Calvin Presbyterian Church effective 
January 20, 1991; approved the following terms of call; and the call 
was ordered placed in his hands.

RECEPTION OF FRANK COLLIER 



ACTION: 

Presbytery approved the committee and floor examination of Frank Collier 
in accordance with Book of Order G-11.0402. In addition to his 
examination, Mr. Collier reaffirmed his Ordination vows in order to re- 
enter the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) from the Church of Scotland. 

a. The Reverend Frank Collier was received from the Church of Scotland 
as an honorably retired minister. He will be serving in the cluster 
group of churches in the Statesville area. Frank was ordained in 
Concord Presbytery. He has served for the last nine years in the 
Church of Scotland. The effective date of his work in the cluster 
is January 1, 1991. 

b. His credo which follows, was approved. 

Everything beings with God, as revealed in the Scriptures of Old 
and New Testaments. I look on the Bible as my rule of what to 
believe and how to live, as well as my 'license' to serve as a 
Minister of the Word. 

Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God, is my only hope of 
Salvation, through my faith that his death at Calvary and 
resurrection on the third day have redeemed the sins of all 
believers, including me. I am conditioned theologically by 



36 



my upbringing and later ministry in the Church of Scotland, and by 
my training for Ministry at Union Theological Seminary in Virginia. 
I subscribe to the Westminster Confession of Faith which I consider 
a remarkable theological document for its time; however, I have 
difficulty with Chapter 3 (Double Predestination) and I prefer 
Chapter 10 (The Power of the Gospel to Salvation) . 

I accept the Church's teaching about and the Bible's authority 
for the two Sacraments - Baptism and Lord's Supper - which I believe 
to be means of grace given us by Jesus himself. To me the most 
important aspect of the Sacraments is what Christ is doing for 
sinners through them. 

My pastoral view of preaching is close to sacramental, in that 
the whole power of preaching is what God is doing for believers 
through (and sometimes in spite of) the words of the preacher. I 
therefore believe that "no preacher should offer God what costs him 
nothing I " 

I view the pastoral task as most important as I see it as a 
continuation of Jesus' own ministry of mercy and compassion. I 
subscribe heartily to the Presbyterian form of government for two 
reasons: a) it is scripturally correct and b) it works. I have 
several times witnessed the General Assembly of the Church of 
Scotland convinced by "one small voice," which clearly spoke a word 
for the Wisdom of God. 

I have no problems in respect of the ministry of women in the 
Church, having supported strongly the ordination of women as Ruling 
and Teaching Elders. I have always sought to have women serve on 
any Church Session which I have moderated. 

In conclusion, although I cherish my Scottish heritage, I have 
no ethnic or racial problems or 'hangups. ' 

c. Mr. Collier was instructed to sign the obligations required of a 
minister to be enrolled in presbytery.

Don Hamilton gave a brief report for the Presbyterian Home and Family Services, 
sharing information about their various programs. 



SELF DEVELOPMENMT OF PEOPLE COMMITTEE 

Jesus of Nazareth befriended and assisted poor and oppressed people teaching his 
followers the same primary responsibility. By funding since 1970 Self- 
Development of People projects, the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) lives out the 
primary responsibility taught by Jesus and demonstrates its solidarity with poor 
people around the world. 

In order to participate more fully in this ministry, Salem Presbytery has 
organized a Self-Development of People Committee. This committee, chaired by 
Elaine Handley, will seek to serve in concrete and monetary ways people who: 

1. are oppressed by poverty or by social systems; 

2. want to take charge of their own lives; 

3. have organized to do something about their own conditions; 

4. have decided what they are going to do that will produce direct long- 
term benefits; 

5. will control the projects which they initiate. 

Funding for the projects will come Salem Presbytery's contribution to the One 
Great Hour of Sharing Offering. Approximately one-sixth (1/6) of the funds 
contributed within our Presbytery will come back to the committee for its use. 

Applications for grants will be accepted until March 15, 1991, with the first 
grants being dispersed about two months later. 

For further information about specific requirements or applications for 
assistance, contact Hewon Han at the Presbytery office (919/766-3393). 



REPORT OF THE STATED CLERK 
John M. Handley 

The Judicial Case involving the matter of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) vs 
Murdock and Woodard has been a difficult and troublesome process for Salem 



41 



Presbytery. One troublesome facet of the matter has been the attempt to provide 
the requested legal aid to the defendants provided for in D-8. 1000b. 

As reported earlier the legal fees of the lawyer requested by Ms. Murdock and 
Mr. Woodard for the trial before Salem's Permanent Judicial Commission were 
$11,000 plus expenses. That was based on $100 an hour which is a reasonable 
rate according to comparisons with other legal fees. 

The Rules of Discipline state that in such cases the Presbytery is to pay 
"reasonable" legal costs (D-8. 1000b. ) . The lawyer for Ms. Murdock and Mr. 
Woodard has now submitted a $29,800 bill for the appeal before the Synod 
Judicial Commission, plus expenses. 

That is a troublesome figure — not just because of its size. The general pattern 
of the preparation time of appeals as compared to the original trial runs 
between 1/4 and 1/2 of that initial preparation. If that is the general 
pattern, a maximum of $5,500 would be "reasonable" and $4,000 would be average. 

There were no new^pproaches and no new evidence claimed by the defense in the 
Synod Permanent Judicial Commission's finding for the Presbytery in denying the 
appeal . 

In light of the fact that notice has been given that further appeal is intended 
by the defendants to the General Assembly Permanent Judicial Commission, it 
seems wise to consider setting a limit or "cap" to fees that will be paid by the 
Presbytery in that phase of the proceedings. 



ACTION: 

Salem Presbytery voted to pay the legal fees presented for the defense 
in the matter of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) vs Murdock and Woodard 
the reasonable amount of $4,000. 



Exceptions to Property Provisions In Accordance with G-8.0701 

The following churches have notified the presbytery through its Stated Clerk of 
their action to claim the exception on church property which is allowed under 
the provisions of the Fort of Government, G-8.0701. These congregations have 
acted in regular manner in accordance with the provisions of the constitution 
and have notified the presbytery of their actions, as required. No action is 
required by the presbytery in this matter. Following are the names of the 
congregations from which the presbytery has received notification since its last 
Stated Meeting. 

CHURCH DATE OF CONGREGATION'S ACTION 

Immanuel September 30, 1990 

Bethesda (Ruff in) October 7, 1990 

Randolph October 14, 1990 

Brentwood November 25, 1990 

Wentworth November 25, 1990 

Glenwood December 23, 1990 



Elder-Minister Balance at Presbytery Meetings 

As required by the Book of Order , I am reporting at this meeting that there are 
208 ministers who are resident members of Salem Presbytery and 187 potential 
elder commissioners from our 157 congregations. Using the plan adopted on April 
6, 1989, each of the 21 racial ethnic churches are asked to send one additional 
elder commissioner to presbytery meetings in 1991.

Notice of Synod Permanent Judicial Commission Action Regarding the Matter of

APPENDIX A 



Exercising your POWER: 

1. KNOW THE DIFFERENCE between a General Assembly POLICY statement and a 
CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT . A number of persons have asked why Presbytery is 
not voting on the reports of the Task Force on Human Sexuality. The reasons 
center around the difference between: 

a. Policy statements (which are basically either interpretations of the 
Constitution or guidelines for understanding current events/situations 
and program development by General Assembly Ministry Units; and 

b. Constitutional Amendments which are changes in the Book of Order and the 
Book of Confessions. 



Our Commissioners to the General Assembly vote on both, the 
Presbytery only votes on Constitutional Amendments. 



Policy statements can be changed by the next General Assembly, while 
Constitutional changes take at least two years. Policy statements are vitally 
important for at least two reasons: 

First, the guidelines of a policy statement affect the programs carried out 
by the Ministry Units, Councils, and other agentry of the Presbyterian 
Church (U.S.A.). 

Second, another type of policy statement interprets the Constitution for 
synods, presbyteries, and sessions in implementing church law ( Example : in 
not ordaining practicing homosexuals to church office) and when specific 
cases are appealed to the General Assembly for decision. 

2. UNDERSTANDING YOUR OPTIONS FOR RESPONSE 

a. You can correspond with Salem's General Assembly Commissioners on your 
views on certain issues before the 1991 Assembly (since Commissioners 
may change due to illness or other circumstances, please address: 
General Assembly Commissioners, P. O. Box 1763, Clemmons, NC 27012 . 
The Presbytery Office will see that each Commissioner receives all such 
correspondence) . 

b. Go to the General Assembly Meeting yourself in Baltimore, Maryland, June 
4-14. Anyone who signs up for a Standing Committee Public Hearing can 
be heard by those commissioners (sign up sheets are available on the 
first or second days of the Assembly — Hearings are usually held by the 
third day) . 

c. An overture from a presbytery. This may be proposed by a session or by 
a presbytery committee. It must be sent to the Stated Clerk of the 
General Assembly by 60 days before the Assembly (April 4) to be mailed 
in advance to commissioners or 45 days to be distributed at the 
beginning of the Assembly. Presbyteries will have the opportunity to 
designate overture advocates to speak for them to the Assembly 
committee. 

d. A communication from an organization which has no regular access to the 
General Assembly through established procedures. Should be submitted 
45 days in advance to the Stated Clerk. 

e. A Commissioner's Resolution. Commissioners to the General Assembly will 
receive a copy of the Manual of the General Assembly. See Standing Rule 
42. Any two commissioners may propose an item of business for assembly 
consideration no later than noon on the third day. This is a useful 
vehicle for late presentation by sessions and presbyteries.

OVERTURE TO THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY

presbytery adopted the following overture: 



ACTION: 

OVERTURE TO THE 203RD GENERAL ASSEMBLY 
OF THE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH (U.S.A.) 

The Salem Presbytery, meeting April 2, 1991, at Highland 
Presbyterian Church, Winston-Salem, North Carolina, overtures the 203rd 
General Assembly as follows: 

WHEREAS, Salem Presbytery has made available to its churches the 
report of the General Assembly Special Committee on Human Sexuality 
entitled Keeping Body and Soul Together : Sexuality, Spirituality, and 
Social Justice , including a minority report, immediately after their 
publication, and has addressed them at two Special Meetings called for 
study and response; and 

WHEREAS, it is the judgment of Salem Presbytery that the majority 
report is inconsistent with Reformed interpretation of the Scripture and 
doctrine; and 

WHEREAS, nevertheless there are issues and perspectives in the 
majority report of significant value and which call for address; and 

WHEREAS, we affirm the need continually to explore issues of human 
sexuality in today's world, in the light of the Scripture and Reformed 
theology and doctrine; and 

82 



WHEREAS, we believe the exploration of human sexuality issues 
should emanate from the broadest possible base of church organizations 
and memberships; 

NOW THEREFORE, Salem Presbytery requests the General Assembly to 
take the following actions: 

1. That the Majority Report of the General Assembly Special Committee 
on Human Sexuality be rejected, that it not be printed in the 
Minutes of the General Assembly, and that it not be disseminated 
except upon specific request to purchase copies; 

2. That the General Assembly Special Committee on Human Sexuality be 
dismissed, with thanks for their labors; 

3. That the General Assembly strongly urge that congregations and 
governing bodies of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) study issues 
related to human sexuality, using Scripture and the Confessions of 
this Church; 

4. That the General Assembly direct its Ministry Unit on Theology and 
Worship and its Ministry Unit on Social Witness Policy to 
collaborate in formulating a bibliography of resources for use in 
these studies; 

5. That the General Assembly devise and implement a method to receive 
and consider the results of such studies through appropriate 
agencies or committees of the Church, with recommendations for 
action based on such studies to be made to the 208th General 
Assembly.

REPORT OF PRESBYTERY COUNCIL 
Rudolph Boone/Rollin "Chip" Steele, Co-Moderators 

The Salem Presbytery Council has met twice since the last Stated Meeting of 
Salem Presbytery. 

For Information : 

1. Council discussed the Human Sexuality Issues presentation to the March 2 
Special Meeting of Salem Presbytery. Council approved the format for the 
March 2 Special Meeting including a component to explain how the 
Presbyterian System works. The following persons were appointed to an ad 
hoc committee from Council and Social Justice Issues Committee to study this 
issue with an eye to a possible overture to the General Assembly: Chip 
Steele, Pat Stewart, J. Herbert Nelson, Steve Thurston, Cindy Higgins, Tom 
Duckwall and one other person from the Social Justice Issues Committee. 
This ad hoc committee reported to the March 19 meeting of Council, at which 
time Council unanimously asked the Moderator to call a Special Meeting of 
Salem Presbytery at Highland Presbyterian Church, Winston-Salem, NC, at 1:00 
p.m. on Tuesday, April 2, 1991. The purpose of the meeting was to consider 
an overture or overtures from Presbytery to General Assembly on the subject 
of the Report of the General Assembly Special Committee on Human Sexuality. 
The following Overture was approved by the Presbytery at its Special Meeting 
on April 2, 1991: 

OVERTURE TO THE 203RD GENERAL ASSEMBLY 
OF THE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH (U.S.A.) 

The Salem Presbytery, meeting April 2, 1991, at Highland Presbyterian 
Church, Winston-Salem, North Carolina, overtured the 203rd General Assembly 
as follows: 

WHEREAS, Salem Presbytery has made available to its churches the 
report of the General Assembly Special Committee on Human Sexuality 
entitled Keeping Body and Soul Together : Sexuality, Spirituality , 



89 



and Social Justice , including a minority report, immediately after 
their publication, and has addressed them at two Special Meetings 
called for study and response; and 

WHEREAS, it is the judgment of Salem Presbytery that the 
majority report is inconsistent with Reformed interpretation of the 
Scripture and doctrine; and 

WHEREAS, nevertheless there are issues and perspectives in the 
majority report of significant value and which call for address; and 

WHEREAS, we affirm the need continuingly to explore issues of 
human sexuality in today's world, in the light of the Scripture and 
Reformed theology and doctrine; and 

WHEREAS, we believe the exploration of human sexuality issues 
should emanate from the broadest possible base of church 
organizations and memberships; 

NOW THEREFORE, Salem Presbytery requests the General Assembly 
to take the following actions: 

1. That the Majority Report of the General Assembly Special 
Committee on Human Sexuality be rejected, that it not be 
printed in the Minutes of the General Assembly, and that it 
not be disseminated except upon specific request to purchase 
copies; 

2. That the General Assembly Special Committee on Human 
Sexuality be dismissed, with thanks for their labors; 

3. That the General Assembly strongly urge that congregations 
and governing bodies of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) 
study issues related to human sexuality, using Scripture and 
the Confessions of this Church; 

4. That the General Assembly direct its Ministry Unit on 
Theology and Worship and its Ministry Unit on Social Witness 
Policy to collaborate in formulating a bibliography of 
resources for use in these studies; 

5. That the General Assembly devise and implement a method to 
receive and consider the results of such studies through 
appropriate agencies or committees of the Church, with 
recommendations for action based on such studies to be made 
to the 208th General Assembly. 

The Task Group established by Synod Council action to review and evaluate 
the Southeast Parish Institute Project formerly operated by the Catawba 
Administrative Unit and the Synod of the Piedmont and to propose 
recommendations as to its continuation under the Synod of the Mid-Atlantic, 
made the following recommendations to Synod Council, and, through it, to

a partnership ministry to carry on this program and that all other 
presbyteries of the Synod of the Mid-Atlantic be invited to 
participate in this ministry. 

C. GOALS AND OBJECTIVES

PERSONNEL COMMITTEE 
Fred Tatum, Moderator 

The Personnel Committee met March 28, 1991, to conduct the annual performance 
review of Ms. Willie Garvin, Presbytery Associate for Business 
Affairs/Treasurer. The review was based upon information obtained from selected 
individuals in Salem Presbytery with specific knowledge of Ms. Garvin's work, 
insights from members of the Personnel Committee, staff, and Ms. Garvin's 
personal statement of self appraisal. The review revealed that Ms. Garvin has 
a strong Christian attitude, which is exemplified in her work with people. She 
possesses a high level of skill, experience and leadership ability which 
qualifies her for her position. She is serious about her work, which motivates 
her to strive for excellence. To further demonstrate her faith, she has joined 
the Clemmons Presbyterian Church where she is actively involved with three 
committees. 

Ms. Garvin demonstrates a cooperative spirit which results in a good team 
player. She has the ability to place others at ease with her flexible style. 
She is responsive to the changing demands of the job as it relates to additional 
assignments as resource person to other committees. Ms. Garvin is held in high 
regard throughout the Synod. The Presbytery is fortunate to have her as 
Presbytery Associate for Business Affairs and Treasurer. 

We are^ delighted that Rev. Carter Shelley's recovery has gone well. She is now 
fully engaged again in her work. We thank God for her recovery and welcome her 
back to her place of leadership.

Affairs/Treasurer, was commended for her job performance during the 
past year, and a prayer of thanksgiving and intercession was offered

Are you aware of all that you are doing through the Hunger Program of Salem

Health Center in Mbujimayi, Zaire, and the Agricultural Experimental Farm, 
Tease, Afram Plains, Ghana. In 1990 you have assisted us in sending fourteen 



96 



(14) checks to agencies within the bounds of Salem Presbytery. Those agencies 
are: 

- Rowan Helping Ministries, Salisbury 

- Council on Aging, Statesville (meals on wheels, congregate meals) 

- JOCCA (Community Action Agency), Pittsboro (meals on wheels) 

- Guilford Food Fair, Greensboro (garden/preserving Project) 

- Caswell County Parish, Yanceyville (meals on wheels)

Let me share excerpts from letters received from people you know: From ILLUNGA 
KALENGA in Zaire: "I tell you, the cost of fuel in this country has badly gone 
up. And this makes everything be expensive. We do not know how long this will 
last because it depends on the Gulf situation, but I deeply hope something can 
be done before lives of many people are affected. Please extend my best regards 
to all the members of the Salem Hunger Committee and their respective families, 
and I hope to hear from you in the near future." (ed. note: the price of gas 
is $5.80 in Zaire 1) 

From NANCY AND ROB CRUMPTON in Ghana: "When I got back to Ghana I began helping 
the contractors in buying the additional supplies and in paying a small portion 
of the labor that was behind... How does March sound for the date of completion. 
This is the date now projected by the U.S.T. (University of Science and 
Technology) people. I'm very discouraged and angry. One of the Technical team 
even said that if we had given them the money (3,000,000 cedis) they had asked 
for they could have saved money and finished the house in December. 

The last two weeks in February Nancy and I will be in Lagon with two other 
Ghanaians at the Research Farm learning to work with donkeys and setting up 
animal traction concept on the farm. We need to do a lot of work on the farm, 
fencing, clearing of land and preparing pasture land. We have some tractor 
land, but a lot of other land that will need the iron wheels of the tractor 
because of the stumps. 

These are our co-workers in the field. They represent us, but even more they 
represent the living Christ to people with whom they work. They need our 
prayers and our support. Please continue to pray with and for them daily. 

As a way of pastoral care and assistance from our presbytery, and to bring back 
an update on the project in the Afram Plains, Dr. Charles Cameron will be going 
to Ghana in April or May. The exact date will depend on the receipt of the 
visas. Charles will be accompanied by his wonderful wife, Marian. They were 
missionaries in Ghana as well as Taiwan and now serve on the Hunger Committee. 
Tell them how grateful you are that they are going 1 

A SINCERE REMINDER: Letters will be going out in June for requests for Domestic 
Grants in the fall. The window for receiving these letters is June 1 through 
August 1. Please get them in by the deadline. 

A "Traveling Road Show" on Lifestyle Stewardship has been prepared and can be 
brought to your church for presentation. Watch the SAMPLER for details. 

Thank you for all your help and prayers. 

During the meeting, the Ethiopian paintings donated by Charles and Marian 
Cameron were sold.

EXAMINATIONS COMMITTEE 
Edwin C. Brammer, Jr., Moderator 



RECEPTION OF MOLLY DOTSON MORGAN 



ACTION: 

Presbytery proceeded with the examination of Molly Dotson Morgan, 
candidate for ordination. She has passed the General Assembly standard 
exams, received a diploma from an accredited theological school, and 
has been examined and approved by the Examinations Committee of 
Presbytery. 

Presbytery approved the committee and floor examination and sermon of 
Molly Dotson Morgan. 

a. Molly Dotson Morgan was received and will be ordained by Salem 
Presbytery so that she may accept the part-time Interim position as 
Associate in Pastoral Care at the Brownson Memorial Presbyterian 
Church of Southern Pines, NC; and she will be allowed to labor 
outside the bounds of Salem in Coastal Carolina Presbytery for this 
purpose. She is presently a candidate under the care of Salem 
Presbytery. Her home church is First Presbyterian of Reidsville, 
NC. 

b. Her credo which follows was approved. 

I believe there is a God. It is the nature of God to give 
life. God gives life to all creation, renews life where there is 
disease and brokenness, and sustains life beyond death. 

God is most fully revealed in Jesus Christ. Jesus is both 
fully human and fully divine. Through his life we see not only who 
God is, but also who God calls us to be. In his death and 
resurrection we are brought back into relationship with God and with 
each other. 

God is also present in the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit 
enables our faith and our understanding. The Holy Spirit enables 
our growth toward wholeness as we attempt to live out what we 
believe. The Holy Spirit sustains our life in faith. 

Scripture contains the story of God's revelation of God's self, 
and is essential to our faith and life. In the stories of the Old 
and New Testament we find revealed a God who creates, calls and 
endlessly redeems the people of Israel, the early Christian 
community and the whole of creation. 

The sacraments were instituted by Christ and are practiced by 
the church as visible signs of God's life-giving, life-renewing and 
life-sustaining presence. In the one time sacrament of Baptism 
(especially infant baptism) we are reminded of the free gift of 
God's grace, that while we were yet sinners, yet infants, yet 
unborn, God offers us reconciliation and new life in Christ. In the 
sacrament of Holy Communion we are reminded of and renewed by our 
oneness in Christ with God, with each other and with the whole of 
Creation. 

99 



The Church is the community of those who acknowledge human 
sinfulness, who accept God's forgiveness in Jesus Christ, and who 
join in worship and work to offer God's love, hope, justice, 
reconciliation and peace to the world. As we share our stories, our 
abilities, our material gains and our lives we live out our call to 
be the body of Christ in the world. 

c. The following Adminsitrative Commission was appointed to Ordain Mrs. 
Morgan on May 19, 1991, at 4:00 p.m. at her home church, the First 
Presbyterian Church of Reidsville, NC.

RECEPTION OF JAMES ENGLISH LAYMAN 



ACTION: 

Presbytery approved the committee and floor examination of James English 
Layman in accordance with Book of Order G-11.0402. 

a. The Reverend James English Layman was received from John Calvin 
Presbytery so that he may accept the Call of the Starmount 
Presbyterian Church of Greensboro. Jim has served the First 
Presbyterian Church of Joplin, MO since 1979. He has degrees from 
Sterling College, Sterling, KS; Louisville Theological Seminary; and 
Princeton Theological Seminary. Jim is married with two grown 
daughters. The effective date to begin work is May 15, 1991. 

b. His credo which follows, was approved. 

I love the church of Jesus Christ. This is the means by which 
God has communicated love, acceptance, forgiveness and new life to 
me. I have always known the fellowship of Christ's body of 
believers and I know I always will. The church has been the channel 
through which I know Jesus as God's Son, the Messiah. The Holy 
Spirit continues to work with and through us human members of the 
church. 

The Bible introduces us to the community of faith and the 
mighty acts of God in history. The story of God's people written 
is also our story. From creation to sin and redemption, God 
covenants with Israel, and with us, the new Israel. The Sacraments 
of Baptism and the Lord's Supper confirm this covenantal 
relationship. It is through the death of Christ on the cross that 
we receive salvation. It is through the resurrection of Christ that 
we receive the gift of eternal life. 

I feel called to be a pastor of a congregation, thus being as 
close to this basic unit of the church as possible. From birth this 
is how I have been nurtured. I look forward to such continuing 



100 



nurture until my death. I grew up in Presbyterian churches where 
my father served as pastor. My brother is also a Presbyterian 
pastor and our family has provided a rich heritage of faith. That 
is what Kay and I, in our nearly 28 years of marriage, have tried 
to pass along to our children and to others. The fellowship of the 
church not only nurtures, it supports and witnesses. The worship 
of the church enables us to unite together to praise God. 

It has been the concern and care of laity and clergy who have 
provided and continue to provide my spiritual development and 
growth. I can cite name after name, experience after experience. 

The challenge God had given me is to provide opportunities and 
settings for the Spirit to stimulate in others relationships to God 
and to each other. Theology, to me, is relational and that my task 
through preaching, teaching, prayer, and service. The world 
confronts us with countless temptations and needs which beg to be 
addressed with the compassion and power of Christ. The church 
exists, not for itself, but to reach out in mission to a hurting 
world. 

I am a Presbyterian, not only by birth, but by choice. I've 
seen the church from varying angles and will not give up on it 
despite its imperfections. My ministry does seek to further the 
peace, unity, and purity of the church and to show the love and 
justice of Jesus Christ. I can and do answer our constitutional 
questions for ordination and installation without reservation. I 
look forward to continuing to serve God's people with energy, 
intelligence, imagination, and love. 

Presbytery approved the establishment of a Pastoral Relationship 
between Mr. Layman and the Starmount Presbyterian Church of

call; and the call was ordered placed in his hands.

e. Mr. Layman was instructed to sign the obligations required of a 
minister to be enrolled in presbytery. 



Presbytery approved the committee and floor examination of Charles W. 
Clubb in accordance with Book of Order G-11.0402. 

a. The Reverend Charles W. Clubb was received from Coastal Carolina 
Presbytery so that he may accept the Call of the Madison 
Presbyterian Church of Madison. The effective date to begin work 
is April 1, 1991. Charles is a graduate of Central Wesleyan College 
of Central, SC and Columbia Theological Seminary. He has a wife and 
two sons. Most recently, he has served as pastor of the Hope Mills 
Presbyterian Church since 1979. 

b. His credo which follows, was approved. 

I believe that God created the heavens and the earth and made 
human beings in God's image, charging them to care for all that 
lives. God made men and women to live in community, responding to 
their Creator with grateful obedience. 

I believe God was incarnate in Jesus Christ, who announced good 
news to the poor, proclaimed release to the prisoners and recovery 
of sight for the blind, let the broken victims go free, and 
proclaimed the year of the Lord's favor. In his life and death for 
others God's redeeming love for all people was visible; and in his 
resurrection there is the assurance of God's victory over sin and 
death and the promise of God's continuing presence in the world. 

I believe God's redeeming and reconciling activities in the 
world continues through the presence and power of the Holy Spirit, 
who confronts individuals and societies with Christ's Lordship of 
life and calls them to repentance and to obedience to the will of 
God. 

I believe the church of Jesus is the provisional demonstration 
of what God intends for all of humanity. As such, the Church is 
called to be a sign in and for the world of the new Creation which 
God has made available in Jesus Christ, i.e., sin is forgiven, 
reconciliation is accomplished, the dividing walls of hostility are 
torn down. The Church is the body of Christ, both in its corporate 
life and in the lives of individual members, and is called to give 
shape and substance to this truth. 

I believe the Church, as the body of believers in Christ, 
participates in the task of reformation and renewal under the 
conviction that God is to be glorified in all things. It serves in 
the confidence that the Kingdom of this world is destined to become 
the Kingdom of God and of the Christ, who shall reign forever and 
ever. 

c. Presbytery approved the establishment of a Pastoral Relationship 
between Mr. Clubb and the Madison Presbyterian Church of Madison 
effective April 1, 1991; approved the following terms of call; and 
the call was ordered placed in his hands.

RECEPTION OF THOMAS KELSEY LANE 



ACTION: 



Presbytery approved the committee and floor examination of Thomas Kelsey 
Lane in accordance with Book of Order G-11.0402. 

a. The Reverend Thomas Kelsey Lane was received from East Tennessee 
Presbytery so that he may accept the Stated Supply position as 
Campus Minister at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. 
Tom served in a campus ministry position in Chattanooga, TN, prior 
to moving to Greensboro. The effective date to begin work is 
February 25, 1991. 

b. His credo which follows, was approved. 

By grace, I entrust my past, present and future to the Triune 
God — the Source, Sustainer and Sovereign of all the worlds that are. 
Creating out of love, God made every person equally in God's image 
and declared "Good!" all that was made. 

Nonetheless, God still acts to reconcile and redeem us and all 
creation. Through Abraham and Sarah, God called us forth as a 
covenant people to empower and restore the human family. Delivering 
us from slavery, God has continued to free us to live under God's 
blessing and judgement as God's servants for the sake of the world. 

In Jesus Christ, fully human and fully God, we come to know God 
and ourselves most truly; and in Jesus, God's rule is a present 
reality. Jesus' acts are God's acts. Jesus' zeal for truth and 
loving-kindness and glad obedience is God's zeal; Jesus' forgiveness 
is God's forgiveness. In the life, death, resurrection and 
ascension of Jesus Christ, the power of sin and evil is ultimately 



103 



broken and we are delivered from anything that might separate us in 
life or in death from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. 

Following Jesus, who called God Father, we come to know 
ourselves as God's beloved sons and daughters — brothers and sisters 
to one another. 

The same Holy Spirit, incarnate in Jesus of Nazareth, not only 
raised up prophets and leaders throughout the history of God's 
people, but also continues to enliven and empower the church and to 
work beyond it. The Spirit gives us courage in our struggle with 
sin and evil and gives to each one spiritual gifts to strengthen us 
as the church in mission. The Spirit joins us in communion with all 
believers and helps us grow into the image and likeness of Christ. 

The Spirit enables us to bring our lives under the discipline 
of the gospel through Scripture and prayer; enables us to know God's 
voice through preaching and teaching; keeps faith with us at baptism 
and feeds us at the Lord's table. 

In the power of the Spirit, the church is sent into the world 
to join God in sharing the liberating gospel and working for 
compassion and justice and peace. In the gratitude and the 
communion of the Spirit, we enjoy God and strive to serve Christ 
a day at a time. We remain watchful as we pray "Come Lord Jesus 1" 
in the knowledge that God who has been faithful from the beginning 
will continue faithful until God's new humanity and God's new world 
have fully come. 

c. Mr. Lane was instructed to sign the obligations required of a 
minister to be enrolled in presbytery. 



COMMITTEE ON MINISTRY REPORT 
Judson Milam, Moderator 

The Committee on Ministry is beginning work on a manual for Committee 
operations. Now in the third year of this committee's work the direction and 
function of the committee seems clearer. Such a manual would not be unlike 
those of other presbyteries. Hopefully this manual would increase uniformity 
and continuity in the Committee's work. The Visitation program continues on a 
three year rotating basis. If your church has not been a part of such an 
opportunity, please look forward to welcoming a team to your Session. New 
directions and patterns for retirement services are being explored. Also, some 
new directions are being explored for the hearing of candidates for ordination 
preach before Presbytery. In the more regular matters of the Committee, we 
offer the following recommendations: 



STATED SUPPLY RELATIONSHIPS 



ACTION: 

The following actions of the Committee on Ministry concerning Stated 
Supply relationships were admitted to the record of Salem Presbytery as

Side Presbyterian Church. The effective starting date is April 1,

terminate this agreement at any time with a thirty (30) day notice.

PREPARATION FOR MINISTRY COMMITTEE 
Z. N. Holler, Moderator 

The Committee has met three times since the last stated meeting of presbytery. 

Grants-in-aid were made to four of our inquirers for educational expenses in 
excess of income during the spring semester and the summer intern period. We 
were gratified to be able to respond 100% to all requests made for this period 
and to do so well within the limits of our budget. Our candidates and inquirers 
are to be commended for being modest and realistic in presenting their fiancial 
needs. Their self -discipline means that the limited funds we have go where they 
are most needed.

a. Robert Clendenin Spach, a member of First Presbyterian Church, 
Winston-Salem and student at Princeton Theological Seminary, was 
enrolled as an inquirer in covenant with Salem Presbytery.

particular sense of call the committee believes are not suited to 
the ministry of the Word and Sacrament in the Presbyterian Church 
(U.S.A.) was terminated; and her letter accepting this judgment of 
the Committee was admitted to record with this affirmation of 
deepest respect and appreciation for Carol's devotion to Christ and 
her courage and persistence in pursuing her sense of call over a 
period of years. Her letter reads: 

"Dear Committee on Preparation for Ministry, 

This letter is written as a reply to your letter of October 1, 1990, 
regarding my candidacy. 

My answer to you has not been a quick and easy reply. Again I have 
struggled with my sense of call and the issue of my candidacy. 

I continue to feel the Holy Spirit working in my life concerning my 
sense of call. At the same time I do not know God's plans for my 
life as a servant of the church. Therefore, on this day, January 
23, 1991, I will make the following statement: "I, Carol Frances 
Smith Dyson accept the recommendation of the Committee for Ministry 
which is that my candidacy be terminated. In accepting their 



108 



recommendation I turn this matter over to the continuous guidance 
and directions of the Holy Spirit. I will remain open to the 
workings of the Holy Spirit through other people." 

Sincerely, 

Carol Frances Smith Dyson 
January 23, 1991

REPORT OF PRESBYTERY COUNCIL 
Rudolph Boone/Rollin "Chip" Steele, Co-Moderators 

The Salem Presbytery Council has met twice since the last Stated Meeting of 
Presbytery. 

For Information 

1. Council approved the Minutes of the April 2, 1991, Special Meeting and the 
April 23, 1991, Tenth Stated Meeting of Salem Presbytery. 

2. In response to a suggestion offered at the last Presbytery meeting, Council 
voted that the Executive Presbyter and Associate Presbyters make reports 
annually (but not at the same meeting) of their work, their dreams for Salem 
Presbytery, and other pertinent matters. This is a trial plan for a period 
of one year, beginning in the Fall, 1991. The Executive Presbyter is to 
report at the February meeting of the Presbytery. 

3. Council referred to the Worship Committee the suggestion that the retiring 
Moderator preach at the February meeting of the Presbytery each year. 

4. Council approved the purchase of Loss Prevention Insurance for Presbytery's 
Staff and officials (including Trustees) at the cost of $100. The expense 
is to be taken from the "Insurance" line item under "Office Costs" in the 
Presbytery budget. 

5. Council approved in principle a request from the Peacemaking Committee to 
sponsor a chartered bus trip to the General Assembly Offices in Louisville, 
pending receipt of more information. The cost of the trip would be borne by 
the travelers. 

6. Council requested the Committee on Ministry to formulate policy 
recommendations for any churches who might consider withdrawing from the 
denomination in the future (now that Article 13 is closed). 

7. Council endorsed the report of the Bicentennial Fund Prospectus Committee 
and expressed its appreciation to the Committee for the work involved in 
preparing the prospectus. 

8. Council endorsed the report of the Budget and Finance Committee. 

9. In 1990 Presbytery approved the purchase of land in Greensboro for the 
Korean First Church. It was later determined that the offered lot would not 
pass the required tests for a septic field. An extensive search was again 
initiated. An appropriate site has now been discovered. Council joyously 
endorses the Recommendations of the Church Development Committee. 



125 



For Action 



In this present year, Ivan Lowery represents both the Black Caucus and serves as 
Presbytery Moderator. Since both the Moderator of Presbytery and the Moderator 
of the Black Caucus have seats on the Council, this leaves part of our Presbytery 
under represented on Council. Therefore, Council proposes the following addition 
to our Manual. 



NOTICE OF AMENDMENT OF SALEM ORGANIZATION PLAN. Amendment of the 
Organizational Plan of Salem Presbytery requires a seven day advance 
notice of such amendment and approval by 2/3 of those present and voting 
at the meeting of Presbytery. 



ACTION: 

In the event a person is eligible for membership on Presbytery's Council 
in two or more categories of membership, the Council shall request the 
group(s) represented to elect another person for the year in question as 
their representative to bring the Council to full membership. (Example: 
if the Moderator of Presbytery is also Moderator of the Black Caucus or 
the Presbytery-wide Presbyterian Men or Women's groups, etc. or if a 
Division Moderator might also qualify for one of the seats mentioned 
above) . 



ACTIONS: 

a. Presbytery approved the request of the Brentwood Church to sell its 
manse pending receipt of further information (i.e. sale price, plans 
for the use of the proceeds of the sale, etc.). 

b. Presbytery approved the request for the Milton and Red House 
Churches to sell the manse that they own jointly. 



ACTION: 

The following policy for distribution of Presbytery Minutes was adopted: 
copies of Minutes of Salem Presbytery Meetings are to be kept in 
Presbytery's Office and copies will be sent to individual pastors and 
churches only upon request. 



Concerning the request of the Westminster Church (Burlington). 



ACTION: 

Presbytery approved the sale of the former East Burlington Church 
property located at 800 Fair Street, Burlington, NC, which was approved 
in principle by the earlier merger agreements, at a sale price of 
$175,000 pending final approval of the sale by the Westminster Church 
congregation (details of the sale were reviewed and approved by the 
Council) . 



126 



Concerning the purchase of the property adjoining the Allen Temple Church of 
Cleveland, NC. They have worked through a local realtor and the price is in line 
with appraised value. This purchase brings under control of the church a 
community "nuisance" gathering place and will be used by the church for 
additional parking and for recreational purposes. 



ACTION: 

Presbytery approved the purchase by the Allen Temple Church of the lot 
adjoining the present church property. 



CONGREGATIONAL LIFE DIVISION 



ADULT MINISTRIES COMMITTEE 

Delores Spielman presented the report. She detailed the status of Older Adults 
in Salem Presbytery, and the response of churches to their needs. During the 
presentation, older adults "Miss Lucy" Rankin and David Downs addressed the

PATHWAYS 

Donna Chase and Ida McCaskill presented plans for the 1991 Pathways event. 
Pathways will be held on October 19, 1991, at First Church, Greensboro.

The annual performance review of the Rev. Carter Shelley, Associate Presbyter for 
Care and Development of Leadership, was conducted by the Personnel Committee June 
20, 1991. 

The review was based upon information obtained from selected individuals in Salem 
Presbytery with specific knowledge of Rev. Shelley's work, insights from members 
of the Personnel Committee, staff, and from Rev. Shelley's self- appraisal. 

The review revealed that Rev. Shelley's faith is exemplified through her work 
with people. She is knowledgeable, supportive, sincere, a good listener, and is 
highly committed to her work which motivates her to strive for excellence. 

The review further disclosed that organization and follow-through are areas that 
require a greater concentration. She has planned to attend Columbia Theological 
Seminary and workshops in order to enhance her professional and spiritual growth 
and development. 

Rev. Shelley is loved and respected throughout the Presbytery. 



ACTION: 

The Rev. Carter Shelley, Associate Presbyter for Care and Development of 
Leadership, was commended for her job performance during the past year, 
and a prayer of thanksgiving and intercession was offered for her at an 
appropriate time during the meeting.

REPORT OF THE BUDGET AND FINANCE COMMITTEE 
Don Lannon, Moderator 
July 13, 1991 

1991 Financial Update . In 1991 our churches have pledged $1,940,289 for 
Benevolence; an additional $24,450 from fees charged for programs is anticipated 
for a total of $1,964,739. The approved 1991 expense budget is $2,024,450; this 
represents a negative balance of $59,711. 

1992 Requested Budget . The original requests from committees and Divisions total 
$2,148,793. This is $123,550 more than 1991 budget. Budget and Finance 
considers this to be an unrealistic budget for 1992 based on pledges from 
churches. 

1992 Asking . The Budget and Finance Committee and Presbytery Council, based on 
past experience, feel that a 4% increase will be necessary for the 1992 budget 
in order to maintain the same level of budgeting as in 1991. (Presbytery 
approved a plan for 1991 benevolence whereby churches giving below the average 
of churches of similar size would increase their giving to this level over a 
three year period. Most churches in this category have responded positively in 
1991.) 

A positive response to the above mentioned request and a reduction of one half 
percent each to the Benevolence Giving to General Assembly and Synod will 
generate more than the $2,032,000 needed to balance the proposed 1992 budget. 

1992 Budget . The attached budget is the result of a budget building process 
which included program and budget hearings. As a result of these meetings, the 
budget has been prepared and approved by the Budget and Finance Committee and 
Presbytery Council, and is hereby presented for your approval (see Appendix C). 

UNUSED BUDGETED BENEVOLENCE . Occasionally, at the end of the budget year, some 
budgeted benevolence funds may not have been used by the various task forces, 
committees and commissions of Presbytery for its program budget and the actual 
receipts from the individual churches and other sources may have exceeded the 
budgeted receipts. When this occurs, there are funds which are not used at the 
end of the budget year by the Presbytery; and, these funds are termed Unused 
Funds . 



ACTIONS : 

1. Presbytery approved the attached 1992 Salem Presbytery Proposed 
budget in the amount of $2,057,200. (Appendix C, pp. 160-163.) 

2. The per cent of total receipts applied to Salem Presbytery was 
increased from 51% to 52%, and the percentage to Synod was reduced 
from 19% to 18.5% and the percentage to General Assembly was reduced 
from 30% to 29.5%. 

3. All year-end unused budgeted benevolence available for Presbytery's 
use shall be spent in the following manner: First, commitments to 
General Assembly and Synod shall be fulfilled including restoring 
the 1/2% 1992 reduction for General Assembly and Synod. Second, any 
unused funds in excess of our commitments to General Assembly and 
Synod shall be used at the discretion of the Presbytery upon 
recommendation of the Presbytery Council in consultation with the 
Finance Committee. 

4. Presbytery approved a loan of $6,666 to Camp Grier for repair of the 
Camp Dam. Loan to be repaid over a two-year period at a rate of 7 
per cent per annum.

REPORT FROM THE BICENTENNIAL FUND PROSPECTUS COMMITTEE 
Dusty Fiedler, Moderator 



Your Bicentennial Prospectus Committee is grateful to all who worked so hard on 
prospectus applications, for your good work made it possible for us to present 
what we believe to be a most exciting group of projects. In the attached booklet 
you will find a description of 18 proposed projects for Presbytery's approval, 
plus 6 more "challenge projects" that can be funded if we exceed our goal. These 
18 projects offer an opportunity for us to support important ministries in the 
4 given areas of evangelism, education, compassionate service to others, and 
global mission; they total $1,457,500 in need. The "challenge projects" total 
an additional $553,012. 

The Committee received 29 applications for requests totaling $3,028,681. It was 
a most difficult job to prioritize and cut in order to stay within our Presbytery 
goal of $1,457,500 (or 55% of our total Bicentennial Fund goal of $2,650,000). 
All 29 applications fell within our published guidelines and criteria for our 
presbytery prospectus, in our opinion. We used these additional prioritized 
concerns in our deliberations. 

* Is the project financially viable, with realistic goals and projected 



* Will the project minister to a large group, with widespread impact? 

* Is the project meeting an important need, one that might not be possible 
without Bicentennial funds? 

* Insofar as possible, do the projects represent a clear geographical 
spread within our presbytery? 

* Do the projects represent the 4 given areas of ministry for the 
Bicentennial Fund? 

It is very difficult to cut more than $1.5 million. In most cases, we were not 
able to fund fully each request, and some of the proposed 18 projects were cut 
substantially; six applications were turned down. We are grateful for the 
understanding and flexibility of all who submitted applications. 

We believe this Bicentennial Fund Prospectus offers Presbyterians in Salem 
Presbytery many challenging and special reasons to dig deep and give generously, 
to God's glory. We thank you for the opportunity to serve the Church on behalf 
of our denomination's exciting Bicentennial Fund.

ACTIONS : 



Salem Presbytery approved the 18 proposed projects as our BICENTENNIAL 
PROSPECTUS and also approved the 6 projects as our additional

CHURCH DEVELOPMENT DIVISION 



CHURCH DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE 
Stephen Hundley, Moderator 

NEW CHURCH DEVELOPMENT: 

The Church Development Committee's goal is to begin three (3) new churches in the 
next five (5) years, beginning first in the North/Northwestern Greensboro area. 
At least one of the new church development projects explored will be a racial- 
ethnic congregation. The project cost would be shared with the regular budget 
of Presbytery, funds from the antecedent Presbyteries designated for new church 
development, local funds, and the Bicentennial Fund. 

The Committee met recently with ministers and representatives from the Greensboro 
area churches to discuss the possibilities and preliminary stages for beginning 
a new church development project in the North/Northwestern area. The main 
purpose of this meeting was to receive input from the area churches and begin the 
process of choosing a STEERING COMMITTEE which will be composed of 
representatives of area churches — pastors and lay persons. 

The Church Development Committee has contracted JAMES EARHART of CHURCH PLANNING 
CONSULTANTS GROUPS of Atlanta, GA, to do a comprehensive New Church Development 
Strategy for Salem Presbytery. The cost of this study is $10,900. The study 
will be completed in July, 1991. 

We are continuing to work with the First Korean Presbyterian Church in locating 
property for their church. Presently, we are negotiating for a specific site in 
Greensboro at a cost of $100,000. 

REDEVELOPMENT : 

We are continuing to work with the Cameron Presbyterian Church as they near the 
completion of their new church. The Committee gave a grant of $25,000 and 
approved a General Assembly loan of $75,000 for this project. 

The Committee has contracted with JAMES EARHART of CHURCH PLANNING CONSULTANTS 
GROUP to do a commentary on the Brentwood/Randolph area. We are exploring with 
the Randolph and Brentwood Churches the possibility of merging and moving to a 
new site. The Earhart study is to be completed in July, 1991. 

We are exploring the possibility of Redevelopment with the Second Presbyterian 
Church, Salisbury, NC. Committee members have met with representatives from the 
area Salisbury Presbyterian Churches to receive their help and input. 

The Committee approved a General Assembly loan of $150,000, and a Presbytery loan 
of $30,000 to the Mt. Tabor Church, Cleveland, NC to build an educational unit; 
we are currently working with General Assembly's Evangelism and Church 
Development Unit to expedite the legal requirements. 

The Committee is bringing to completion the development of a comprehensive 
Mission Design for Church Development in Salem Presbytery. This Design includes 
"Biblical and Theological Considerations" and "A Philosophy of Mission in Church 
Development". We hope to present this paper for approval at the Fall meeting of 
Presbytery. 

We solicit the support, guidance and prayers of Presbytery as we attempt to 
strengthen the local churches through redevelopment and new church development. 



ACTIONS : 

1. Salem Presbytery authorized its Trustees to purchase a tract of land 
on Stagecoach Trail, Greensboro, North Carolina and described in

2. The Church Development Committee in consultation with Willie Garvin, 
Presbytery Associate for Finance and Business Affairs/Treasurer, was 
authorized to complete the arrangements for the purchase of the 
parcel of land at a purchase price not to exceed $100,000. 

3. Salem Presbytery approved for this purpose the use of funds from its 
designated Church Development Funds and the Church Development 
Committee was authorized to develop an appropriate funding plan. 

4. Salem Presbytery authorized and instructed the Trustees to execute 
all necessary documents to complete the purchase of the parcel of 
land described above. 

5. Presbytery approved the Contract to Purchase dated 6/17/91 subject

within the proposed corridor for Painter Boulevard. 



CHURCH IN THE WORLD DIVISION 

HUNGER COMMITTEE 
George Carpenter, Moderator 

Greetings from your Hunger Committee I We are most appreciative for the support 
the congregations in Salem Presbytery give to the Pennies for Hunger/Two Cents 
A Meal allowing continuing efforts to alleviate hunger in the International 
Partnerships in Zaire and Ghana and in the many projects we can assist within 
Salem Presbytery. Let me call your attention to the following: 

1. All congregations have received the letter including requests for 
Applications for Domestic Grants (agencies within the bounds of Salem 
Presbytery) . Please give these prayerful attention and mail any 
requests you may have to Presbytery office; the deadline for the fall 
grants is August 1. We receive many more requests than we have funds to 
honor entirely, but each request receives prayerful consideration. No 
grants are accepted after the deadline. 

2. Flo and Charles Sthreshley have returned from Zaire. They did some 
evaluation of Mbujimayi and attended the meeting of the Board at the 
clinic at Mbujimayi and a full report will be given to the Hunger 
Committees of Salem and New Hope Presbyteries on July 31. You will hear 
more about this later. 

3. Charles and Marian Cameron will report on their trip to the Afram 
Plains, Ghana and particularly on our Tease partnership. This includes 
sharing some of the music from the Ghana church. Following this report 
is a map of the area showing some of the places they will talk about. 

We continue to be thankful for all who participate in the Pennies for Hunger/Two 
Cents A Meal offerings. If you have not participated, you don't know what you're 
missing! Get involved by challenging/educating the congregation to the work we 
do together 1 Keep those pennies coming in. 



PEACEMAKING COMMITTEE 
Chris East, Moderator 

Your Peacemaking Committee wants you to know that there are still two slots open 
at the home we have reserved at Montreat during the Peacemaking Conference on 
August 11-14. The theme this year is "Breaking Down Walls" and includes over 30 
workshops on ways that we can break down walls in self, family, community, 



133 



church and the world. Jim McGinnis, Director of the Institute for Peace and 
Justice, will be the Keynote Speaker. 

The Salem Peacemaking Committee is working to develop three of our own projects. 
Recognizing that there are walls between the local church and our General 
Assembly, we are organizing a bus trip to Louisville to tour the General Assembly 
office and to interview and learn from several of the Ministry Unit leaders. You 
will be hearing more about this as we put this package together. Secondly, 
recognizing the call to be in partnership with the Third World, and understanding 
that work trips are not feasible for many of our churches, we are looking into 
a Presbytery-wide work trip to Haiti. There is much organizing to be done. If 
the doors open, we would move toward such a trip during the summer of '92. 
Finally we want to offer some leadership in terms of peacemaking and the Middle 
East. Presently we are working with our General Assembly office as well as the 
Middle East Council of Churches to set up a "twinning relationship" between 
congregations in Salem and churches throughout the Middle East. If this works 
out, Salem congregations which wish to participate will adopt a church in the 
Middle East. A variety of activities will be encouraged generally revolving 
around communication and prayer. 

As you may know, 25% of the money raised by the Peacemaking Offering in October 
returns to Presbytery. The monies we receive will be going to projects like the 
ones mentioned above. 



WORSHIP AND COMMUNION 

At 11:30 a.m. the Presbytery joined in a service of Worship and Communion led by 
the Rev. Grant Sharp. The preacher was the Rev. Michael E. Askew, Sr. 
Donald L. Armitage was the organist. 



LUNCH 

The Presbytery was recessed for lunch at 12:30 p.m. 

AFTERNOON SESSION 

At 1:15 the Presbytery divided into three groups to hear Candidates for 
Ordination Shawn Edwin Barkley, Steven Wakefield Dyer, and Kellie Elizabeth 
Weekley . 

The Moderator reconvened the Presbytery with Prayers of Intercession and 
Thanksgiving led by Jim Rissmiller. 



REPORT OF THE EXAMINATIONS COMMITTEE 
Edwin C. Brammer, Moderator 

Presbytery proceeded with the examinations of candidates Shawn Edwin Barkley, 
Steven Wakefield Dyer, and Kellie Elizabeth Weekley. They have passed the 
General Assembly Standard Exams, received a diploma from an accredited 
theological school, and have been examined by the Examinations Committee of 
Presbytery. 

RECEPTION OF SHAWN EDWIN BARKLEY 



ACTION: 

Presbytery approved the committee and floor examination and sermon of 
Shawn Edwin Barkley. 

a. Shawn Edwin Barkley was received and will be ordained by Salem 
Presbytery so that he may accept the Call of the Crestwood 

134 



Presbyterian Church of High Point, NC. Shawn is a graduate of 
Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green, KY, and Columbia 
Theological Seminary. He has been under the care of Transylvania 
Presbytery, and has been a member of the First Presbyterian Church 
of Richmond, KY. The effective date of this Call is June 16, 1991. 

b. His credo which follows, was approved: 
I Believe 

that there is one living triune God, who is the creator of us 

all. God revealed Godself to the world through the Torah and the 
prophets of Israel. Israel named God "Yahweh," and they were God's 
people. Even though God revealed Godself to Israel, God's power was 
over the entire world for it was God's creation. 

that God exists in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. 

that the Bible is the unique and authoritative revelation of God. 

It was written by fallible people who were influenced by their 
culture, yet inspired by God. In this lies its authority as the 
rule for faith and life today. 

that Jesus Christ was completely a man and completely God. He 

was crucified on a cross where he bore the sins of humanity and 
satisfied the judgment of God. He now makes intercession with God 
on behalf of his people. It is in Christ where God comes to us in 
a personal way. This is not about philosophical knowledge, but an 
actual relationship between Christ and his people. 

that the Holy Spirit dwells in God's people and enables us to do 

God's will on earth. 

that those who believe in Christ are chosen by God for service to 

the world. We are to bear witness to the love of God, and pray that 
in Christ all will be saved from being separated from God. 

that Jesus Christ began the work of establishing the Kingdom of 

God on earth, and he will return to complete that work when God 
wills. 

that humans are sinful and have no hope of earning God's love, 

but receive it through the grace of God which was shown in Christ. 

that the Church is the body of Christ on earth. He established 

the Church and the sacraments of baptism and the Lord's Supper, 
which are celebrated therein. She worships God, equips people to 
relate to one another as Christ taught with loving acceptance, and 
proclaims the Gospel to those who are outside the fellowship of the 
Church. 

that the Presbyterian form of polity is affirmed in the 

Scriptures. Also, Reformed theology is faithful to the entire 
Biblical witness. Our connectional system is a living organism 
which models the body of Christ, thus recognizing the importance of 
our fellow Christians. 

that Christians are to work for peace and justice among peoples, 

and the created world. 

(These are my beliefs at this point in my life.) 

c. Presbytery approved the establishment of a Pastoral relationship 
between Mr. Barkley and the Crestwood Presbyterian Church effective 
June 16, 1991; approved the following Terms of Call; and the call 
was ordered placed in his hands.

RECEPTION OF STEVEN WAKEFIELD DYER 



ACTION: 



Presbytery approved the committee and floor examination and sermon of 
Steven Wakefield Dyer. 

a. Steven Wakefield Dyer was received, pending dismissial from his 
present Presbytery, and will be ordained by Salem Presbytery so that 
he may accept the Call of the Graham Presbyterian Church of Graham 
to be their Associate Minister. Steve is a graduate of Columbia 
Biblical College of Columbia, SC and Princeton Theological Seminary. 
He is presently a Ph.D. Candidate at the University of Virginia. He 
has been recently working as a student assistant at the First 
Presbyterian Church of Charlottesville, VA. He has been under the 
care of the Presbytery of the James, and has been a member of the 
Meadows Presbyterian Church of Charlottesville, VA. The effective 
date of this Call is August 1, 1991. 

b. His credo which follows, was approved: 

God, the creator and sustainer of all, is known through the 
persons of the Father (or Parent), the Son, and the Holy Spirit. In 
the economy of God which we see in the Bible, the Father orders, the 
Son carries out God's will and was the visible expression of God to 
the world, and the Holy Spirit enables us to know the truth and to 
put it into practice. 

While God is spiritual in nature, that does not preclude 
emotions that humans understand. The meaning of human creation in 
the image of God refers to our ability to have a range of emotions 
and our capacity to choose. What we choose is important, as is the 
way that we choose. In this, Christians are guided by the love of 
God, a love for all persons. This love is not the indulgent love of 
a well-intentioned but ineffectual parent, but the effectual and 
compelling love of a wise, powerful and able God who has called the 
Church to be the Bride of Christ. 

The Bible, as God's Word, contains sufficient guidance in 
matters relating to our faith and practice. The Bible is not an 
"answer book" to scientific questions or the world's problems, but 



136 



it does show us the concerns and commitments of God — concerns and 
commitments which are our own as God's children. The biblical 
example helps us see the world's need for the Christian message and 
for repentance in the face of human sin. We are charged, with God's 
help, to seek and implement God's answers to the problems we 
encounter. 

Sin does exist, being a state of estrangement from God and a 
deafness to the will of God as made known through Christ, God's 
Word, and the Holy Spirit. Ignorant sinfulness is the natural 
condition of humans; rebelliousness in the face of God's love is the 
choice of many. Salvation is the re-establishment of human 
communion with God. It is the result of divine initiative, humans 
being unable to undertake their own salvation. The human portions 
of salvation are faith in Jesus as the Christ sent from God, 
repentance for past rebellion, and commitment to follow the leading 
of God in all things. 

Salvation is available to all who seek it, and it is the desire 
of God that all be saved. The reason for Christ's advent was God's 
love for humanity, and the fruit of his life, death, and 
resurrection is our salvation. Jesus assured his disciples that all 
who are God's children would be saved and that God does not wish 
that any should perish. That does not necessarily mean that all 
will ultimately be saved, but that none are without hope. 

The church, the Bride of Christ, is made up of all believers in 
Christ and their children. As God's family, we are called to live 
a life of self-sacrifice, witnessing together to the power of God in 
our lives and the potential all persons have to make a difference in 
the world. This difference goes beyond personal religious 
experience to include changes in the world in which we live. The 
Church is literally Christ to the world and must take its 
responsibilities to itself, to others, and to God most seriously. 
As Christ fought religious and secular inadequacy, injustice and 
prejudice with messages of hope and thunderings of condemnation, so 
must we. In addition to its duty to witness to the world, the 
Church is a worshipping body. Worship is central to our life as the 
people of God. In our response to the preached Word of God and the 
sacraments, we renew our spiritual energies and gain direction from 
our Source. 

In matters of eschatology, the Bible is exceedingly difficult 
to interpret. The most that may be said with assurance is that the 
fate of the world is ultimately in the hands of God. Christ and the 
Church will win in the end. Humans may mar the face of creation, or 
make it beautiful, but the time and nature of its end are known and 
decided by God alone. 

Presbytery approved the establishment of an Associate Pastor 
relationship between Mr. Dyer and the Graham Presbyterian Church 
effective August 1, 1991; approved the following terms of call; and 
the call was ordered placed in his hands.

a. Kellie Elizabeth Weekley was received and will be ordained by Salem 
Presbytery so that she may accept the Call of the Lansing 
Presbyterian Church (3/4 time) as pastor, and the Mt. Jefferson 
Presbyterian Church (1/4 time) as Associate Pastor. Kellie is a 
graduate of Union Theological Seminary in Richmond and Marshall 
University in Huntington, WV. Most recently she has done intern 
work in the Government Street Presbyterian Church of Mobile, AL. 
The effective date of this Call is August 1, 1991. 

b. Her credo which follows, was approved: 

I believe in the one true God, the creator of all that is. God 
has all power and might, perfect in all ways, knowing all things, 
and working in all things to bring about the perfect will of God. 
God has been active throughout history, calling the people of Israel 
to faithfulness as God's children. But due to humanity's sinful 
state, they continually turned away from this calling. Through 
Jesus Christ, God made a new covenant with the people, which saved, 
freed, and redeemed us to live in right relationships with others 
and with God. 

I believe in Jesus Christ, who is both fully God and fully 
human. God's love and grace were so that Jesus was sent into the 
world, crucified and resurrected. In his death, Christ took upon 
himself the weight of all our sins, but God triumphed over sin and 
death through Christ's resurrection. This salvation is not in any 
way earned by our actions, nor initiated by us. Only through faith 
in Christ are we saved. Christ entered into the world, and the 
human situation, to teach us how we are to live. His model of love 
and service for others emphasizes our call to be servants to one 
another, to the Glory of God. 

I believe in the Holy Spirit, one with the Father and the Son. 
The Holy Spirit works in our hearts, bringing to us the knowledge of 
our sin and God's grace. Our faith in God is possible only through 
the work of the Holy Spirit. It is through the Holy Spirit dwelling 
among us that we are united in, and to, Christ. The Holy Spirit 
imparts various gifts to us, to be used for good works and God's 
Glory, as well as comforting and sustaining us throughout our lives. 

I believe the Holy Scriptures are the inspired word of God, to 
be interpreted through the guidance of the Holy Spirit for our lives 
today. They are God's gift given to us for guidance, comfort, 
strength, inspiration, and as a witness to God's amazing power and 
love. Through the Scriptures, the church finds direction and 
meaning for its worship, education, pastoral care and outreach. 



RECEPTION OF KELLIE ELIZABETH WEEKLEY 



ACTION:

I believe the sacraments of the church, namely Baptism and the 
Lord's Supper, are the outward signs of the church to the world 
along with the preaching of the Word. The sacraments are a sign of 
God's covenant of grace. The grace exhibited by the sacraments is 
not through the power of the elements themselves, or the one 
administering them, but through the power of the Holy Spirit working 
through the sacrament. Baptism is both an outward sign of joining 
into the community of faith and a personal joining of the baptized 
to Christ. The Lord's Supper is a time of remembering Christ's 
sacrifice of himself, as well as a rededication to the bond with 
Christ and each other. 

I believe God calls the church to be an active witness to the 
sovereignty of God through proclamation and outreach, and through 
being a community that exemplifies Christ's love among its people. 
The church is to be a source of hope amidst a world in despair, both 
by sharing the word of God with all people and showing God's love 
through acts of compassion and solidarity towards those in need. We 
are called to be stewards of God's good creation, caring for our 
environment and its precious resources, and all the people of the 
earth. We must do all we do to the glory of God, for it is God who 
made us and saves us. I believe it is the mission of the church, 
and individual Christians, to spread this good news to all.

e. Ms. Weekley was instructed to sign the obligations required of a

Presbytery proceeded with the examination of Russell Holmes Ritchel, Jr. , Marie 
P. Reed, and Larry Eugene Summey, who wish to transfer into Salem Presbytery. 
They have been examined and approved by the Examinations Committee of Presbytery. 



RECEPTION OF RUSSELL HOLMES RITCHEL, JR. 



ACTION: 

Presbytery approved the committee and floor examination of Russell 
Holmes Ritchel, Jr. in accordance with Book of Order G-11.0402. 

a. The Reverend Russell Holmes Ritchel, Jr., was received into Salem 
Presbytery from Tres Rios Presbytery so that he may accept the Call 
of the First Presbyterian Church of Winston-Salem. Russ has studied 
at Illinois Wesleyan University, Kansas University, Southern 
California College and Princeton Theological Seminary. He has a 
B.A. from Kansas, and M.Div. from Princeton. Russ has been serving 
the First Presbyterian Church of Midland, Texas as pastor. The 
effective date of this Call is August 1, 1991. 

b. His credo which follows, was approved: 

I believe in God the Father. We experience God as father and 
creator as His children, in His creation, and in our creatureliness. 
He revealed himself to His people Israel and we find our story in 
their story as it is recorded in the scriptures of the Old 
Testament. Although the masculine gender of parent is predominantly 
used in the scriptures, they also describe a God in whom we come to 
understand what it means to be a father, but also a mother. In the 
God whom we serve, we come to understand in fullness what it means 
to be a parent. 

I believe in His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. One great mystery 
of our faith is that God himself incarnated Himself in human flesh; 
fully God and fully human. He lived among us without sin, was 
arrested, unfairly tried, and put to death. His death was a payment 
for our sin, but God vindicated Him by raising Him from the dead. 
In Jesus' life we see an example in how we ought to live, in His 
teaching we learn about God and his pre-disposition toward us, in 
his death for us and His resurrection tell us of the grace God 
extends toward us. In that grace we can find forgiveness for our 
sin and a personal relationship with God becomes possible and we 
receive the promise of life eternal. 

I believe in the Holy Spirit through whom we experience God in 
the present. This Spirit inhabits the lives of those whose faith 
and trust is in Jesus and is a gift from God to us. The one who 
places his/her faith in Jesus Christ is placed and bound by this 
spirit into the church which is the Body of Christ. The church is 
to be a mission station in the world, proclaiming the good news, 
working for reconciliation, and loving women and men in the name of 
Christ. 

The Scriptures are unique, reliable, and authoritative 
witnesses to the work of God in the world. Our study and 
interpretation of scripture is guided and informed by our 
confessions. When viewed under the guidance of the Spirit and 
informed by the history of the church, these scriptures become God's 
word to us. They are not to be worshiped in themselves, but are the 
authority for the life of faith. 

The reformed tradition is one of a number of systems which seek 
to understand and give systematic meaning to scriptures and to the 



140 



faith. I stand firmly within that tradition for a number of 
reasons. As a child, I was raised and confirmed in a Presbyterian 
church. It is a tradition which is founded on the scripture, faith 
and grace. Through my study I have come to appreciate the 
consistency and rationality of the reformed understanding of the 
faith. A faith which is "reformed and always reforming" is the only 
faith which holds promise for persons in a rapidly changing world. 
We serve a God who progressively reveals Himself. Only a reforming 
faith can maintain relevance in a changing world. 

c. Presbytery approved the establishment of a Pastoral relationship 
between Mr. Ritchel and the First Presbyterian Church, Winston-Salem 
effective August 1, 1991; approved the following Terms of Call; and 
the call was ordered placed in his hands.

RECEPTION OF MARIE P. REED 



ACTION: 

Presbytery approved the committee and floor examination of Marie P. Reed 
in accordance with Book of Order G-11.0402. 

a. The Reverend Marie P. Reed was received into Salem Presbytery from 
Southern New England Presbytery so that she may serve as a Member- 
at-large. Marie has moved to North Carolina along with her husband 
who is now working in the Greensboro area. She looks forward to 
finding a Call within Salem Presbytery. Marie is a graduate of Yale 
Divinity School with a Masters of Divinity, Temple University with 
a Masters in Education, and the University of Pennsylvania with a 
B.A. Since 1988, Marie has served as Associate Pastor in the 
Noroton United Presbyterian Church of Darien, CT. 



141 



b. Her credo which follows, was approved: 

I believe in God who is the Creator, Redeemer and Sustainer of 
the world in which we live. Created in the image of the infinite 
God, we are free to participate in God's eternal purposes for the 
history of humankind. God alone is the ultimate authority in human 
life and the ultimate security in the temptations, crises and 
tragedies of our common existence. It is relationship to God that 
gives to our lives eternal value, depth of meaning and clarity of 
purpose. 

Created for relationship with a holy God, men and women 
throughout all ages have chosen in selfishness and pride to remain 
alienated from themselves, from God and from one another. Seeking 
to make our own way, we have ignored our sisters and brothers, 
creating devastation in the world. Seeking to glorify the works of 
our own hands, we have denied the everlasting and ever-loving God, 
and the earth created as our home. We have all served as the means 
of our own separation from God, which is sin. 

The gracious God who made us is a self-revealing God whose 
mercy is beyond the measure of our minds, and whose eternal purposes 
encompassed the means of our redemption. The ultimate revelation of 
God is the man Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, who invaded 
time and space to demonstrate to finite human beings the true nature 
of the infinite God. Truly God and truly man, in him the nature of 
God and all the potential of humanity converged. Through the life, 
death and resurrection of our Redeemer, a full atonement for sin has 
been made. Victory over sin and death, new life in Christ, and 
reconciliation to God are offered to all who in faith accept the 
Lord Jesus Christ as Savior. 

The Spirit of God convicts us to acknowledge Christ's Lordship 
of life, and provides the means of grace by which we become the 
people of God, the Church. Continually strengthened by God's Spirit 
within us, we assemble as a community of loving concern to worship 
God, to sing praises, to offer prayer and to be instructed by the 
Word of God. Through baptism believers and their children are 
counted as heirs of the covenant of grace and members of the family 
of God. At the Lord's Table we remember Jesus' death on the cross 
and we rejoice in his resurrection with its promise of new life. In 
the sacraments we are united to Jesus Christ and to one another. 

Empowered by the presence of the Holy Spirit, the Church is 
called to be a reconciling community in the world. We respond by 
proclaiming the good news of salvation, by ministering to the needs 
of the poor and the powerless, by involving ourselves in the 
struggle against oppression and injustice. Whether in our common 
life together or in our mission in the world, the study of scripture 
provides an indispensable guide for our daily lives. The Bible as 
the inspired Word of God is the means whereby the knowledge of God 
in Christ has been received. The scriptures are the gift of God and 
we lay hold of them by faith. 

We are a pilgrim people, at once a part of the Kingdom of God 
and yet always in the process of becoming. The Kingdom will yet be 
fulfilled, will yet reach its completion in that future when our 
hopes and joys will be realized in the presence of God, our Creator, 
our Redeemer and our Sustainer. 

c. Mrs. Reed was instructed to sign the obligations required of a 
minister to be enrolled in presbytery.

RECEPTION OF LARRY EUGENE SUMMEY 



ACTION: 

Presbytery approved the committee and floor examination of Larry Eugene 
Summey in accordance with Book of Order G-11.0402. 

a. The Reverend Larry Summey was received into Salem Presbytery from 
Coastal Carolina Presbytery so that he may accept the Call of the 
Franklin Presbyterian Church of Franklin, NC. Larry is a graduate 
of Union Theological Seminary in Richmond with a D.Min., and Furman 
University. Recently he has been working on his Th.M. through Duke 
Divinity School, with an anticipated completion time of April 1992. 
Larry is presently serving the Sherwood Presbyterian Church of 
Fayetteville, NC. The effective date of this Call is August 1, 
1991. 

b. His credo which follows, was approved: 

I believe in God the Creator of all things and the Source of 
all life and being. When I think of God the Creator and all the 
wonders of creation, as well as the mighty acts of God, I am filled 
with awe and praise. Human beings were created to be in a right 
relation with God, but because of sin, we are separated from God. 

God, however, is more than Creator. God has been revealed to 
us as Father. Although God is indeed almighty, God remains the 
Father of our Lord Jesus Christ and through Christ, the Father of us 
all. God loves each of us according to everlasting grace and mercy. 
Even discipline and judgment are governed by God's unending love. 

This great love, grace and mercy are most clearly shown to us 
in Jesus Christ, God Incarnate (Immanuel - God with usl). In Jesus 
Christ, God became like us, suffered our temptations and freely took 
the punishment for our sins. Because of Jesus' life, death and 
resurrection, we are no longer separated from God but are reconciled 
children of our Heavenly Father, heirs to the covenant of Grace. 
Because of God's saving act in Christ we are given the blessed gift 
of eternal life. Through Jesus Christ we are saved. 

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the third Person of the trinity. 
It is through the Holy Spirit that we experience the actual presence 
of Jesus Christ in our world today and in our lives. The Holy 
Spirit is indeed the Comforter sent to us by Christ after His 
Ascension. Through the Holy Spirit, we receive the guidance and 
wisdom to preach, teach and understand God's Word. 

I believe the Scripture is the unique and authoritative witness 
and revelation of God's saving acts culminating in Jesus Christ, 
inspired by the Holy Spirit. Because of its absolutely unique 
witness, the Bible can be called the Word of God, written. 
Scripture points us always to Jesus Christ and is a guide for the 
Christian life. 

The church is the Body of Christ with Christ always as the 
Head. As members of the Church, we are totally committed to Christ 
and his ministry. This means that we are called to love as He loved 
and to serve each other and the world even as he came to serve. The 
church is the Community of Faith. Some of the biblical and credal 
images of the church which are particularly meaningful for me are 
"family of God," "Household of Faith," and "Communion of the 
Saints." For me, these metaphors for the church indicate that the 
church provides a family and a home where we can find true belonging 
and acceptance. With our sure knowledge that we belong to the 
family of God, we can share the message to those outside the church 
that they are accepted by God and belong with us as well. 

The key biblical foundation for my faith is Romans 5:8: "But 
God shows his love for us that while we were yet sinners, Christ 
died for us." This biblical truth is beautifully illustrated by our 



143 



Presbyterian practice of the baptism of children. Before the infant 
is old enough to do anything good or bad, God already loves the 
child enough to have sent the Son into the world for him or her. 
God claims the child by name. The child belongs to the family of 
faith. In like manner, God loves each of us and calls us by name. 
It is this message that we as a church can and should proclaim to 
our world today. 

c. Presbytery approved the establishment of a Pastoral relationship 
between Mr. Summey and the Franklin Presbyterian Church effective 
August 1, 1991; approved the following Terms of Call; and the call 
was ordered placed in his hands.

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON MINISTRY 
Judson Milam, Moderator 



The Committee On Ministry's work on a manual is still on course. It should be 
finished by the end of this year. Hopefully it will provide not only a guide to 
structures and policies, but also practical material and resources for carrying 
out the functions and programs of the Committee. In other matters two new task 
forces are being formed, the first is on sexual misconduct and harassment, and 
the second concerning procedures for dealing with churches seeking to leave the 
denomination in the future. The Church Visitation Program continues to be in 
operation. If you have questions about how this relates specifically to your 
church, please contact Bill Knox. If you have ideas, questions or concerns that 
may facilitate the work of the Committee On Ministry, please do not hesitate to 
share them by contacting the Presbytery Office, any member, or the moderator.

146 



It has been two years since the Committee on Ministry has 
recommended a change in the minimum compensation level. This is a 
change of slightly less than four percent to the overall cost to the 
church. 

Major factors that influenced the Compensation Committee of the 
Committee on Ministry were: cost of living, financial struggles in 
the small church, and the limited ability of the Small Church 
Support Committee to provide additional economic support to the 
small churches. 

1992 Proposed Minimum Salary Figures

MINIMUM SALARY GUIDELINES FOR DIRECTORS OF CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 



ACTION: 

The following minimum compensation was approved as the Minimum Salary 
Guidelines for Directors of Christian Education. 

The Committee was influenced by the level of increase being 
suggested for ministers and cost of living. 

SALARY 

1991 = $19,500 1992 = $20,085 (3%) 

Base Salary - $15,000 Base Salary = $15,450 

Housing = $ 4,500 Housing = $ 4,635

Base = 7.65% Base = 7.65% 

PENSION 

1991 = $4,875 1992 = $5,837.80 

Base = 25% of salary Base = 27% of salary 

AUTO EXPENSE 

1991 = $1,500 1992 = $1,733.33 

Base =2/3 the estimate for clergy

experience, AFTER CERTIFICATION, up to ten years.

met again on June 18, 1991 for its regular meeting. At the latter, we approved 
Dale Davidson for candidacy. 



148

REPORTS OF SYNOD COMMISSIONERS 

John Milholland reported on the actions of the Synod meeting in Richmond, 
Virginia, June 27-29, 1991. 



REPORT OF GENERAL ASSEMBLY COMMISSIONERS 

As commissioners from Salem Presbytery to the 203rd General Assebmly we find the 
experience very difficult to put into words. Probably all Assemblies take on 
their own unique character, nonetheless the eight days in Baltimore were 
extraordinary. We went through great emotional highs and lows as events led up 
to Monday morning the 10th when we acted on the Human Sexuality Committee report, 
and on through the week as we concluded our business. There were plentiful times 
of excitement, exhileration, and renewal as well as moments of depression, 
sorrow, and pain. We are not sure we would want to walk through the experience 
again, on the other hand we feel blessed to have served the church as 
commissioners to the 203rd. 

What sticks with us is the enormous swing from powerful moments of grace as we 
felt touched by God and so excited to be in Baltimore to other moments when we 
felt stressed out beyond our limits and only wanting to get home soon. Grace- 
filled moments came to us as we adopted the Brief Statement of Faith, as we 
observed North and South Koreans embrace, as we commissioned new partners in 
mission and celebrated the homecoming and retirement of missionary servants, as 
we rejoiced in the commitment to new church development, and as we closed 
celebrating the Lord's Supper. The stressful times revolved around our diversity 
that was always with us as we tabernacled around the inner harbor of Baltimore. 

As commissioners who make their home in North Carolina, it was only natural for 
us to feel a kinship to Price Gwynn. In the brief hours that we enjoyed his 
leadership we came to see how much we were going to be losing by turning the 
Moderator's gavel over to another. The power of his leadership was especially 
felt in this farewell address. Here he spoke powerfully of his conviction that 
the future of the Presbyterian Church does not rest in our ability to find 
consensus or even to agree on key issues, rather our future depends on our 
learning to respect and love one another in the midst of our diversity. Our 
experience at General Assembly confirmed that we are indeed a diverse church and 
that being inclusive and loving will continue to be our greatest challenge. With 
Mr. Gwynn we are convinced that it will only be our faith in Jesus Christ that 
can bind us together as we continue to work with hard questions. 

One of the blessings of General Assembly is the formation of new relationships 
even while old friendships are touched. We especially enjoyed the times of 
fellowship and warm communion between fellow Salem Commissioners. While these 
new relationships were being formed we would find new stacks of paper at our seat 
to read and digest. It has become common to laugh at all the paperwork that is 
thrown at the commissioners. However, often it really did not feel comical, but 
quite impersonal. There were many who felt that General Assembly was trying too 
hard to do too much. There was more on our plate than we could digest. We 
wondered if all this busyness was the reason why there was much "pickyness" on 
the floor over relatively minor issues. In the midst of that busyness we were 
fortunate to remember that General Assembly is not really about business, but 
about people seeking ways to believe toghether. Ultimately it will be the people 
that we will remember. 



149 



We found working on the headline issue of the Human Sexuality paper to be both 
encouraging and sorrowful. We were pleased that one of our own Salem 
Commissioners had a leadership on this committee. Throughout the Assembly there 
was a feeling that this committee did an extraordinary job working in such an 
explosive atmosphere. That this committee approached their task in a fair and 
sensitive manner was obvious. That this committee struggled at a very deep and 
painful level was equally obvious. There was no surprise when their report was 
adopted with very little amendment. At the same time our action on the Human 
Sexuality paper led us into deep discussions in which there was profound 
disagreement. Despite our common faith, it was very hard for brothers and 
sisters in Christ to take opposing sides on an important issue that is before the 
Church. Following the adoption of the committee's report, there was a silent 
protest which confirmed the measure of pain which persists on this subject as 
well as the truth spoken in the adopted pastoral letter "this issue is not going 
to go away." (See Appendix E.) We encourage our presbytery and congregations 
to take the lead in continuing the dialogue and study. 



ACTION: 

The Eleventh Stated Meeting of Salem Presbytery directed Presbytery's 
Council to formulate a plan which will be in concert with the action 
taken by the 203rd General Assembly to begin our own study of Human 
Sexuality. The details of conducting this study will be worked out by 
Council and will be reported to the Twelth Stated Meeting of Salem 
Presbytery. 



REPORT OF THE STATED CLERK 

Reflections 

"It feels good to be finished!" is a statement often heard. Sometimes it is both 
bitter and sweet to have something completed. Endings have an element of 
sadness. We are finally finished with the judicial process in the matter of the 
Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) V. Kathleen Murdock and Michael Woodard. The 
Article 13 process has now expired with two churches staying and one going out. 
The two who remain with us both had sizable groups who voted to leave us. 

The "good to be finished" phrase in these matters carries the pain and hard 
feelings over the agonies caused by "taking sides" and becoming adversaries. Yet 
our Lord stated clearly that in seeking to be faithful, family ties and 
friendships would be broken. We have lost three ministers and one church and a 
number of members. "Winning", obviously, is not the point 1 

Let us pray that in our efforts to be a faithful part of Christ's Body, we have 
learned something of the humility of doing the best we knew to do and still 
finding no victory in winning 1 Rather, I pray that we have strengthened our 
dependence on God's rule and guidance 1 

May God's name be praised and in God's sometimes paradoxical providence, may the 
Church be strengthened. May Kathleen and Mike and Sarah go their way in peace. 
May Alex Coblentz find new guidance in handling the inevitable tension between 
one's personal faithful responses to God and a minister's faithfulness to the 
Church (which includes, at least, loyalty to a church and a denomination) in 
seeking to participate in the creation of the Kingdom of God. 

May the folk at Old Town and Thyatira Churches who wanted to go and those at Back 
Creek who wanted to stay, let the past fade and focus on future faithfulness 
seeking to discern God's leading in strengthening their church connections. May 
God use the future witness of all three churches toward the longed-for day when 
the creation will join the church in ceasing its groaning over brokenness and 
separation to rejoice in the company of bowing knees and hearts confessing that 
"Jesus is Lord!"

BACK CREEK SPECIAL COMMITTEE REPORT 
Don Hart, Chairman 

Martha West made the report for the Committee. 

On October 8, 1990, a committee was appointed by Presbytery composed of Mr. Tom 
Harrell/ Rev. Bob Lewis, Mr. W. R. Perrell, Mr. Charles Newsome, Dr. Martha West, 
and Mr. Don Hart, Convener, to work with Back Creek Church as it followed the 
process outlined in Article 13 of the "Articles of Agreement" in the Book of 
Order. 

The Special Committee offered prayer, work, and effort to keep Back Creek in our 
denomination. We produced four issues statements in response to the 
congregation's questions. We met with the session twice, with their 
congregational gatherings on four occasions, and led three such gatherings 
ourselves. We were represented at the two congregational meetings required by 
the Article 13 process. The Back Creek congregation voted on May 19, 1991, to 
be dismissed to the Presbyterian Church of America by a vote of 119 to 25. 

Our Committee believes the vote was directly related to the leadership provided 
by the Rev. Alex Coblentz, pastor of the Back Creek Church. Not only did Mr. 
Coblentz fail to provide leadership on behalf of the Presbyterian Church 
(U.S.A.), he encouraged the congregation to seek dismissal from the Presbyterian 
Church (U.S.A.) under the provisions of Article 13. Our Committee was 
disappointed in his failure to exercise the complete trust the Presbyterian 
Church (U.S.A.) placed in him by virtue of his ordination as a minister and his 
installation as pastor of the Back Creek Church. We believe that to the extent 
he failed to uphold that trust, he was not faithful to his ordination vows. 



ACTIONS : 

1. The Back Creek Presbyterian Church was dismissed, with deep sadness, 
to the Presbyterian Church in America effective July 13, 1991. 

2. The Rev. J. Alexander Coblentz was dismissed from Salem Presbytery 
to Central Carolina Presbytery, Presbyterian Church in America 
effective July 13, 1991. The Presbytery believes the vote was 
directly related to the leadership provided by the Rev. Alex 
Coblentz, pastor of the Back Creek Church. Not only did Mr. 
Coblentz fail to provide leadership on behalf of the Presbyterian 
Church (U.S.A.), he encouraged the congregation to seek dismissal 
from the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) under the provisions of 
Article 13. Our Committee was disappointed in his failure to 
exercise the complete trust the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) placed 
in him by virtue of his ordination as a minister and his 
installation as pastor of the Back Creek Church. We believe that to 
the extent he failed to uphold that trust, he was not faithful to 
his ordination vows. 

3. The Special Committee was dissolved. 



THY AT IRA SPECIAL COMMITTEE REPORT 
S. Edwin Lewis, Chairman 

After the Thyatira Presbyterian Church, Salisbury, NC, announced its intent to 
pursue Article 13, the Moderator of Presbytery appointed a Special Committee to 
work with the Thyatira Church in accordance with the approved guidelines of Salem 
Presbytery. While the Committee was appointed in early September, 1990, that 
action was reported to the October 2, 1990, meeting of Salem Presbytery through 
the Stated Clerk's report. Members of the Special Committee were Haywood Cope, 
Leland Richardson, Sam Sloop, Linda Thurston, and Ed Lewis, Chair. 



153 



The Special Committee worked with the session and the congregation, providing 
guidance and representing the concerns of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). 
Thyatira Church followed the procedure specified in Article 13 and in Salem 
Presbytery's guidelines. On June 2, 1991, the Thyatira Church held a 
congregational meeting to vote on the question posed by Article 13, with the 
following results: Request dismissal to another Reformed body, 70; Do not 
request dismissal, 133. 

While Presbytery's Special Committee is pleased that the Thyatira Church voted 
to remain a part of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) family, we are saddened that 
70 persons in the congregation feel that it would be in the best interest of the 
congregation to seek another denominational affiliation. We express appreciation 
for the support on behalf of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) that pastor Malcolm 
M. Bullock provided the congregation and our committee prior to his departure as 
pastor on December 31, 1990. Also, we are grateful for the leadership that has 
been provided by interim pastor John A. Wilkerson, Jr. since the first of this 
year. Your committee believes that he and the Thyatira Church session will be 
able to provide the needed leadership to facilitate reconciliation, spiritual 
growth, and a strong outreach ministry. 



ACTION: 

Salem Presbytery dissolved the Special Committee to work with the 
Thyatira Church.

APPENDIX E 

A PASTORAL LETTER TO THE MEMBERS OF THE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH (U.S.A.) 

June 11, 1991 

Dear Members and Friends: 

We, the commissioners and advisory delegates to the 203rd General Assembly, 
write you out of pastoral care for our church. 

We have acted on a number of important matters. None, however, has drawn 
more attention than human sexuality. We write to communicate our actions and to 
offer a pastoral word for our church. 

We have not adopted the special committee's Majority Report and 
recommendations, nor have we adopted its Minority Report. We have dismissed the 
special committee with thanks for their work, and with regret for the cruelties 
its members have suffered. 

We have reaffirmed in no uncertain terms the authority of the scriptures of 
the Old and New Testaments. We have strongly reaffirmed the sanctity of the 
marriage covenant between one man and one woman to be a God-given relationship 
to be honored by marital fidelity. We continue to abide by the 1978 and 1979 
positions of the Presbyterian Church on homosexuality. 

We are also convinced that the issues raised again by this report will not 
go away. Though human sexuality is a good gift of God, we and our families are 
in pain. We are being torn apart by issues of the sexuality and practice of 
adults: single, married, and divorced; teenage sexuality and practice, sexual 
violence, clergy sexual misconduct, new reproductive technologies, AIDS, sexually 
transmitted diseases, and the sexual needs of singles, gay and lesbian persons, 
the disabled, and older adults. 

That pain was felt by us here in Baltimore, expressed by people of very 
different perspectives. Some of these issues on which there is considerable 
theological and ethical disagreement within the church. 

We also believe that at the heart of the recent debate lies a painful 
distrust of the General Assembly by many of our members. Often the General 
Assembly has been perceived as telling individual members what to think. Let it 
be said that in Baltimore the 203rd General Assembly (1991) heard the cry of the 
church for an Assembly that listens to the grass roots. In that spirit, we have 
instructed the Theology and Worship Ministry Unit of the General Assembly Council 
to prepare a plan to encourage us as Presbyterians in our theological and ethical 
decision-making. We reaffirm that the church is healthiest when it honors what 
we Presbyterians have always believed, as expressed in the "Historic Principles" 
of 1788: That God alone is Lord of the conscience, and has left it free from the 
doctrines and commandments of men and women which are in anything contrary to 
God's Word, or beside it, in matters of faith and worship; and also that there 
are truths and forms with respect to which people of deep faith may differ 
(G1.0300). This is an opportunity to learn again what it means to be 
Presbyterian . 

In conclusion, we wish to reaffirm that we are all one as Christ's body and 
while we are diverse, we are one family of faith because of the unconditional 
love of God for all persons. We welcome your response to our action as we rejoin 
you this next Sunday. May the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ keep us 
and bless us in the Spirit of divine grace and love. 

Yours in Christ, 

Signed: 

Herbert Valentine, Moderator 

James Andrews, Stated Clerk 

Gordon Stewart, Committee Moderator

SESSION RECORD REVIEW PROCESS 

The following procedure of reviewing Sessional Records is designed to 
accomplish the following purposes: 

1) Provide advice and instruction to all Clerks of Session so as to 
improve quality and usefulness of Sessional Records; 

2) Give opportunity for fellowship and sharing of ideas and 
programs that work among churches within their geographic Salem 
Section; 

3) Share resources for solving problems within the churches in the 
Section; and 

4) Make the Annual Presbytery Review a more meaningful and helpful 
process for the churches. 

A. On a designated Saturday or Sunday afternoon in the last quarter of 
each calendar year, all Clerks or other representatives shall gather 
with their Minute Books and their church rolls at a host church 
convenient to the Salem Sections being reviewed. 

B. The Presbytery Stated Clerk will provide instructions for reviewers. 
Checklists to be used will be explained. 

C. Each Clerk will review one of the sets of materials presented (other 
than their own) .

needed changes. An appointment will be set for resubmission of the 
record book and rolls for final approval.

Presbytery.

and sell a donated piece of property to Chatham County, pending the

adjacent to the County landfill operation.) 

3. Council approved entering into a subordination agreement whereby the 
Mortgage Funds owed by the Shallowford Church to Salem Presbytery will 
become the second mortgage in order that the indebtedness previously 
approved might become the first mortgage. 

IV. RECOMMENDATIONS TO PRESBYTERY 



ACTION: 

Presbytery approved the following persons to serve on the Nominating 
Committee: 

Moderator: Malcolm Bullock - '92 

Class of 1992, Mrs. Joyce Johnson 

to replace Mrs. Valerie Thomas, deceased 

Class of 1994 

Ms Dorena Stevenson 
Mr. Keith MacLean 
Ms. Margaret Marks 



ACTION: 

Salem Presbytery approved the docket for its TWELFTH STATED MEETING, 
October 1, 1991. 



ADMINISTRATIVE SERVICES DIVISION 

BUDGET AND FINANCE COMMITTEE 
Don Lannon, Moderator 

The Budget and Finance Committee reports that finances received through August, 
1991, are as expected in relation to the pledged budget. The schedule (Appendix 
C, p. 203.) reports our giving based on the 1991 approved budget. With the 
endorsements of the Presbytery Council, we present the following recommendations 
for your approval. 



175 



ACTIONS: 

1. A new item was added to the 1991 operating budget — Office Structure- 
-and the $4,000 previously approved by Presbytery for architectural 
fees in connection with the new office structure will come from 
year-end unspent funds. 

2. A new item was added to the 1991 operating budget for legal 
expenses, and $1,000 was allocated to this item; approved funding 
from Council Program Pool. 

3. The budgeted travel for John Handley and Willie Garvin was increased 
by $2,000 and $500 respectively in 1991; approved funding from 
Council Program Pool and/or year-end unspent funds. 

4. Presbytery increased the designated cash flow reserve from $75,000 
to $125,000 for 1991. (Funds from this reserve can only be used to 
maintain an adequate cash flow for the work of the Presbytery. ) 



In 1988, portions of Concord, Orange and Yadkin Presbyteries were organized as 
the Salem Presbytery. Because of the affiliation of former Orange Presbyterians 
with Camps New Hope and Presbyterian Point and former Concord Presbyterians with 
Camp Grier, Salem Presbytery became part owners of three camps. 

There are differences in our Presbyteries, thus our operating procedures are 
handled differently. Camp Grier set up its books and handles all its financial 
operations separately from any of the owning presbyteries. Camps New Hope and 
Presbyterian Point, on the other hand, have not set up structures to handle its 
finanial operations. This function is performed in one of the offices of the 
owning Presbyteries — New Hope Presbytery. As a natter of fact, the camping 
operation is not set apart from the operations of the Presbytery, thus no 
audit/report for camps can be made exclusive of the Presbytery. 



ACTION: 

5. Because the camp operations have been incorporated within the 
operation of New Hope Presbytery and cannot be separated for 
auditing purposes; and, 

Because Camps New Hope and Presbyterian Point audited finances must 
be included as a part of our audit — this is accomplished through the 
efforts and cooperation of the two auditing firms; and, 

Because the Books of the Presbytery of New Hope are only now in the 
process of being audited for 1990, 

Salem Presbytery gave special permission to its Council to approve 
the 1990 Audit for Salem Presbytery, and this task to be 
accomplished prior to December 31, 1991, to become an addendum to 
the minutes of this Presbytery meeting. (Appendix D, pp. 204-223.) 



PERSONNEL COMMITTEE 
Fred Tat urn, Moderator 

The annual performance review of the Reverend Hewon Han, Associate Presbyter for 
Congregational Life, was conducted by the Personnel Committee September 4, 1991. 

The review was based upon information obtained from selected individuals in Salem 
Presbytery with specific knowledge of Reverend Han's work, insights from members 
of the Personnel Committee, staff, and from Reverend Han's self appraisal. 



176 



Responses provided by respondents were candid and varied: 

- Doing a great job 

- Need more exposure to local church leaders 

- His presence has been a positive force in directing the educational arm of 
the Presbytery 

- Too much behind the scenes; few people know him 

- Would like to see Hewon get more assertive in what he has to offer the local 
church 

- Need to be more directive 

- Good balance of style 

- Would be too directive if there were not strong committee members 

- Allows members to act according to member's goals for the committee 

- Teaches Christian faith through explanation; models Christian faith through 
use of gifts and behavior 

- The Presbytery was wise in selecting him 

The committee is grateful for and fully utilizes the assessments submitted by 
respondents in the decision making process. 

The review revealed that greater exposure and assertiveness are areas that 
require concentration. 

Notwithstanding, the results of the overall review clearly demonstrate that The 
Reverend Hewon Han's faith is exemplified through his work with people. He is 
dedicated, knowledgeable, cooperative, energetic, supportive and is an effective 
organizer and planner. Reverend Han is highly committed to his work which 
motivates him to strive for excellence. 



ACTIONS : 

1. The Reverend Hewon Han, Associate Presbyter for Congregational Life 
was commended for his job performance during the past year, and a 
prayer of thanksgiving and intercession was offered for him at an 
appropriate time during the meeting. 

2. The tri-annual review for The Reverend John Handley, Executive 
Presbyter/Stated Clerk will be reported at the February meeting of 
Salem Presbytery. By action of Presbytery, Dr. Handley will remain 
employed as Executive Presbyter/Stated Clerk during the interim 
period (December 31, 1991, and the February, 1992, meeting of 
Presbytery) . 



COMMUNICATIONS COMMITTEE 
David Lee-Andrews, Moderator 

David Lee-Andrews presented the new brochure for Salem Presbytery. 



OUTDOOR MINISTRIES DIVISION

ACTIONS : 

1. Presbytery gave thanks to God for a very successful 1991 Summer 
Camping Program at Camp Grier and prayed for spiritual growth of the 
1991 Staff and the 1,182 campers who attended. 



177

Volunteer Counselors, Pastors, Educators, Paid Staff, and Helpers

The representation of Black/Ethnic minorities exceeds their percentage of the 
Presbyterian membership, 10% (39,000/4,000). There are, however, some committees 
whose responsibilities might be better carried out with a greater percentage of 
minorities, women, clergy, or lay members. The Committee on Representation has 
prepared an analysis by committee membership which will be available at the 
Presbytery office to moderators of committees and anyone who wishes a copy. 

We were unable to complete an analysis of the representation on committees by 
geographic sections of Salem Presbytery because some listings did not have this 
information. Here is an approximate comparison: 

Sections #3, #4, #6 - 50 - 85 each 
Sections #2, #5 - 25 - 40 each 

Sections #1, #7, #8 - 1-15 each 



178 



The information on ages of members of committees was too imcomplete to allow any 
meaningful comparison. 

The Committee on Representation has two requests: 

1. Pastors and session should be alert to members of their churches who can 
contribute through skills and commitment to the work of one of the 
Presbytery committees. Please ask these persons to fill out information 
forms for the assistance of the Nominations Committee. 

2 . Moderators of committees should remember the work patterns of the members of 
their committees and plan meetings so that members can attend. The goal of 
representation is not met by names on the membership list if some members 
are unable to attend.

CHURCH IN THE WORLD DIVISION 



HUNGER COMMITTEE 
George Carpenter, Moderator 

The Hunger Committee continues to seek to be faithful in the use of the Pennies 
for Hunger/Two Cents Per Meal designated funds. After almost three years of 
experience as the Salem Presbytery Hunger Committee and the generosity of the 
people in our Presbytery, we find our International commitments can be met with 
a smaller percentage and we need additional money inthe Domestic funds; this will 
enable us as a Presbytery to be more faithful as stewards and pragmatic in the 
use of designated funds. The changes are a decrease of ten percent in 
International money, an increase of five percent in Domestic money, and the 
addition of a new category, EDI (Either Domestic or International) of five 
percent; there is no change in Education and Promotion. See Item #3, GUIDELINES 
FOR THE USE OF RESTRICTED HUNGER FUNDS . 

The committee's recommendations for funding in most cases must have the approval 
of the Division of Church in the World and for amounts over $5,000 the approval 
of Council. So that we can better coordinate schedules, the Committee recommends 
the deletion of "in March and October" and "in February and September" under Item 
#6 in the GUIDELINES . 

Realizing the enormity of the task of combating the global crisis on hunger and 
the realization we belong to the Church of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Hunger 
Codmmittee has prepared a statement, SALEM PRESBYTERY COMMITMENT ON ACTION 
AGAINST GLOBAL HUNGER , with the recommendation it become a commitment statement 
of the Presbytery. 



179 



ACTION: 

1. Presbytery approved the revision of GUIDELINES FOR THE USE OF 
RESTRICTED HUNGER FUNDS (Appendix E, pp. 224-225).

AGAINST GLOBAL HUNGER (Appendix E, p. 226).

REPORT OF THE EXAMINATIONS COMMITTEE 
Ed Brammer, Moderator 

Presbytery proceeded with the examination Worth Nelson Watts, Sr. and Donald 
George Price, who wish to transfer into Salem Presbytery. They have been 
examined and approved by the Examinations Committee of Salem Presbytery. 



RECEPTION OF WORTH NELSON WATTS, SR. 



ACTION: 

Presbytery approved the committee and floor examination of Worth Nelson 
Watts, Sr. in accordance with Book of Order G-11.0402. 

a. The Reverend Nelson Watts, Sr. was received into Salem Presbytery 
from Coastal Carolina Presbytery so that he may accept the Call of 
Glenwood Presbyterian Church of Greensboro, NC to serve as pastor. 
Since 1976, Worth has served as pastor of the Jonesboro Presbyterian 
Church, Sanford, NC. He is a graduate of Guilford College and 
Columbia Theological Seminary. The effective date of this call is 
September 1, 1991. 

b. His credo which follows, was approved: 

I believe in a loving God who brought forth order out of chaos. 
God is to be honored as Creator, loved as Savior, served as Lord, 



181 



feared as judge and praised as our hope for this life and the next. 
God's nature is most clearly revealed in the incarnation of Jesus 
Christ. 

I believe in Jesus Christ as our Savior who, through the cross 
and resurrection, made it possible for us to live as forgiven 
sinners, reconciled to God and living in a right relationship with 
others . 

I believe in the Holy Spirit who convicts, comforts, instructs 
and encourages those in the faith. 

I believe the church is the community of faith comprised of 
saints from all ages who have professed Jesus Christ as Savior. 
Christ is the head of the church. The scriptures are the church's 
authoritative source in matters of faith and practice. 

I believe the sacraments of the church to be baptism and the 
Lord's Supper. Both sacraments illustrate the mysterious presence 
of God in the church. In the act of baptism, the church affirms 
that believers and their children are heirs of the grace of God and 
members of the worshipping community. In communion, we do this in 
remembrance of all that Christ has done for us through His life, 
death and resurrection. Both sacraments are acts of celebration and 
identification and are almost always communal rather than private 
acts of worship. 

I believe the scripturally designated leaders of the local 
church are the ministers of the word and sacraments, and the elders. 
It is their responsibility to encourage progress in the church 
family while prayerfully seeking the guidance of the Holy Spirit. 

Presbytery approved the establishment of a Pastoral relationship 
between Mr. Watts and the Glenwood Presbyterian Church effective 
September 1, 1991; approved the following Terms of Call; and the 
call was ordered placed in his hands.

Retirement on April 30, 1991. Since 1971, Donald Price has served

the University of Texas at El Paso; a B.D. degree from San Francisco 
Theological Seminary; and a Master of Theology and a Doctor of 
Ministry from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary. 

b. His credo which follows, was approved: 

From my spiritual diary I have written this about myself: 

My most important thought: my individual responsibility to God. 
My most important purchase: the Bible when I was seventeen. 
My most important question: Will you marry me? 
My most important promises: 

To be a life-long follower of Christ. 

To be a loving and faithful husband. 

To be an examplary minister of the Gospel. 
My motto: always prepared and on time. 

My aim: Reverence, gratitude, and a life pleasing to God. 

I love the Scriptures and study and teach them as the Word of 
God. The Holy Scriptures indicate that we please God when we 
worship, work, witness and live together in harmony with His will. 

He is pleased when we are guided by the Holy Scriptures. 

He is pleased when we intentionally commit ourselves to his dear 
Son, Jesus, as Lord and Master of this life and the life to 
come. 

He is pleased when we are baptized, confirmed, and grow in 
Christlikeness . 

He is pleased when we participate in the life of the church. 

He is pleased when we are generous in our support of Christian 
missions . 

He is pleased when we invite others to follow Christ within the 
fellowship of the church. 

Therefore, I this day publically renew my vows that God the 
Father is my Creator, Sustainer, and Highest Good; 

I confess anew God the Son as my Lord and Savior; I would be his 
disciple forever; 

I confess anew God the Holy Spirit to be my guide, strength and 
comforter; 

I pledge anew the pleasing of Almighty God to be my highest 
purpose in life. 

I take the Holy Scriptures to be the rule for my thoughts and 
actions, and the people of Cod to be my people under all conditions. 



183 



I renew my allegiance of loyalty to the Presbyterian Church 
(U.S.A.) and as an ordained minister therein, believing it to be an 
authentic part of the Body of Christ, whose purpose is to encourage 
and support Christian worship, education, fellowship and mission. 
I affirm our practice of the sacraments of baptism for professing 
Christians and their children and the sacrament of the Lord's Supper 
for all baptized and professing Christians and the ordination of 
duly qualified and called men and women to the offices of the 
church. 

I do hereby rededicate and devote to the Lord all that I have, 
all that I do, and all that I am. 

This I do deliberately, freely, and forever... So help me God. 
Amen. 

c. Mr. Price was instructed to sign the obligations required of a 
minister to be enrolled in Presbytery.

PLANNING CONSULTANTS GROUP, Atlanta, Georgia. (The Committee will be reporting 
on this study today!) The study will point out five (5) areas of Salem 
Presbytery of high growth with the potential for new church development. These

187 



KOREAN CHURCH PROPERTY: 



The purchase of the Stagecoach Trail Property for the First Korean Presbyterian 
Church has not been completed. We are still waiting the decision of the city of 
Greensboro concerning Painter Boulevard, which may or may not run through the 
property. 

REDEVELOPMENT: 

We are continuing to work with the Cameron Presbyterian Church as they near the 
completion of their new church. The work has been delayed because of a fire at 
Statesville Stained Glass, the company providing the windows. They still hope 
for a fall date to begin using the building. 

We have been exploring the possibility of merging two churches in High Point — 
Randolph and Brentwood. After completing a demongraphic commentary in 
Brentwood/Randolph area, through Church Planning Consultants of Atlanta, we could 
not find an area within a five mile radius of the two churches that showed a 
potential for growth or the potential that would justify relocation. Bob Oates 
of the Church Development Committee will continue to work with the two churches 
while they study other possibilities. 

We are exploring the possibility of Redevelopment with several other churches in 
Salem Presbytery, but have no recommendation concerning such churches at this 
time. 



ACTIONS : 

1. The Presbytery received for information and study the New Church 
Development Strategy for Salem Presbytery.

Project in the Northern Greensboro area: Mr. & Mrs. J. E. Bear, 
III, Bonnie Burkette, Owen Cooke, Bill Hylton, Don Lannon, and Sam 
Zealy . 

4. Any funds left in the 1991 working budget will be transferred to CDC

development in the Greensboro area.

REPORT OF THE STATED CLERK 



Book of Order Provision G-14.0202(2) 

I have consulted with the Rev. Mr. Paul Woodall, pastor of the Bethel Church 
(McLeansville) satisfying the requirements of the Book of Order G-14.0202(2) 
whereby the congregation voted August 11, 1991, not to abide by the provisions 
of G-14.0201. They have done this annually for a number of years since they have 
one lifetime elder not subject to their normal rotary system of classes. 



Sessional Records Guidelines 

Clerks of Session should study carefully the following guidelines adopted by 
Salem Presbytery. Review your 1990 Minutes and records accordingly. The dates 
for Presbytery Review in your section will be announced by letter to Clerks and 
Ministers . 

Guidelines for Evaluation 
of Sessional Records 

Minutes and Records 

Each session shall keep a full and accurate record of its proceedings which shall 
be submitted at least once each year to the presbytery for its general review and

trustees of the particular church. 

Every session shall maintain rolls of members as defined by G-5.0200, and 
registers as provided below (G-10.0302). Minutes should indicate at least annual 
updating and review by the Session. 

a. Membership Rolls . The names of the members shall be placed upon, removed, 
or deleted from the rolls of the church only by order of the session 
whenever the session is fully satisfied that such action is justified. 

(1) Baptized Members' Roll. The baptized members' roll shall list the 
names of those persons baptized in the particular church who have 
not made a profession of faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior,

of those who have been received into the membership of the church 
and who are active in the church's work and worship. The number of 
members on this roll shall be reported to the General Assembly 

An active member who has temporarily moved from the community may 
become an affiliate member of another church of this denomination or 
of a denomination in correspondence with the General Assembly, in 
which case the session may issue a certificate of good standing. 
(G-15.0201.) The certificate shall be directed to a particular 
church named therein, shall commend the member to its pastoral care 
and shall be valid for two years. Upon the issuance of the 
certificate, the session shall retain the name of the member on the 
active roll of the church until the person is received into

When a member moves and can no longer be active in the work and 
worship of the church of membership, it shall be that person's duty 
to become an active member of a church in the community where that 
person is living. The session of the church of membership shall 
inform the person of this duty as soon as practicable and shall 
notify a church in the new community and request it to provide 
pastoral care with a view to membership. In addition, notice shall 
be sent to either the presbytery office or to the stated clerk of 
the presbytery or both. 

(3) Inactive Members' Roll. The inactive members' roll shall list the 
names of those who have been removed from the active members roll 
because of their failure, in the judgment of the session, to 
participate in the church's work and worship. No member shall be 
transferred from the active to the inactive roll until that member 
shall have failed intentionally to participate in the work and 
worship of the church for a period of one year and until the session 
shall have made diligent effort to discover the cause of the 
member's nonparticipation and to restore the member to activity in 
the church's work and worship. Any member whose name is so 
transferred shall be notified of this action. 

A nonresident member to whom the notice required above has been

RESOLUTIONS COMMITTEE 
Rosa Yourse presented and Presbytery adopted the following resolution. 



ACTION: 



Presbytery approved the following resolution and included it as a part 
of the Minutes of this Twelfth Stated Meeting of Salem Presbytery. 



Whereas, the session, pastor, and congregation of Trinity Presbyterian 
Church accorded to Salem Presbytery a warm and gracious welcome, 
with the help of a multitude of cheerful volunteers, who helped us 
park, register, and locate life's necessities, we thank them for 
tempting snacks and a delicious lunch which they prepared and served 
with remarkable speed, 

And whereas, Moderator Ivan Lowery, with efficiency, expediency, and 
finesse presided over the Twelfth Stated Meeting of Presbytery, 

And whereas, the worship leaders reminded us of our diversity as 
persons, but oneness in Christ and the midday worship inspired us to 
seek openness to the presence of the Holy Spirit, 

Be it therefore resolved that the Salem Presbytery give thanks for God's 
presence and guidance of our meeting, and for the hard work and care 
the members of Trinity Presbyterian Church, Salisbury, North 
Carolina, dedicated to making today a success. Let the people say, 
AMEN. 



There being no further business, the Twelfth Stated Meeting of Salem Presbytery 
was adjourned at 3:21 p.m. with prayer by Moderator Ivan Lowery.

INDEPENDENT AUDITOR'S REPORT 



The Council of Salem Presbytery 
Clemmons, North Carolina 



We have audited the accompanying balance sheets of the General Fund, Restricted 
Fund, Loan and Grant Fund and Plant Fund of Salem Presbytery as of December 31, 
1990, and the related statements of support, revenue, expenses and changes in fund 
balances and cash flows for the year then ended. These financial statements are 
the responsibility of the Presbytery's management. Our responsibility is to 
express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit. We did not 
audit the financial statements of Camp Grier, Camp New Hope and Presbyterian 
Point, which represent 92% of the assets of the Plant Fund. Those financial 
statements were audited by other auditors whose reports thereon have been 
furnished to us, and our opinion, insofar as it relates to the amounts included 
for Camp Grier, Camp New Hope and Presbyterian Point, is based solely on the 
report of the other auditors. 



We conducted our audit in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards. 
Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable 
assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material 
misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting 
the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes 
assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by 
management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. 
We believe that our audit and the reports of other auditors provide a reasonable 
basis for our opinion. 



In the opinion of the auditors of Camp New Hope and Presbyterian Point, referred 
to in the preceding paragraph, the financial statements do not present fairly the 
financial position of these Camps as of December 31, 1990, in conformity with 
generally accepted accounting principles. These two Camps do not give recognition 
to depreciation of plant assets. The assets of these two camps represent 79% of 
Salem Presbytery's Plant Fund assets. We believe the effects of not providing 
depreciation to be material to the accompanying balance sheet of the Plant Fund 
and the related statements of support, revenue, expenses and changes in fund 
balances and cash flows. 



206 



The departure from generally accepted accounting principles discussed in the 
preceding paragraph does not have an effect on the financial statements of the 
General Fund, the Restricted Fund and the Loan and Grant Fund. 

In our opinion, the financial statements referred, to above present fairly, in all 
material respects, the financial position of the General Fund, Restricted Fund and 
Loan and Grant Fund of Salem Presbytery as of December 31 , 1990, and the results 
of its operations and cash flows for the year then ended in conformity with 
generally accepted accounting principles. In our opinion, because of the effects 
of the matter discussed in the preceding paragraphs, the balance sheet and 
statements of support, revenue, expenses, and changes in fund balances and cash 
flows of the Plant Fund of Salem Presbytery do not present fairly its financial 
position as of December 31, 1990 and for -the year then ended in conformity with 
generally accepted accounting principles. 

Our audits were made for the purpose of forming an opinion on the financial 
statements taken as a whole. The supplementary information contained on pages 14 
through 15 is presented for purposes of additional analysis and is not a required 
part of the financial statements. Such information has been subjected to the 
auditing procedures applied in our examination of the financial statements and, in 
our opinion, is fairly stated in all material respects in relation to the 
financial statements taken as a whole.

Salem Presbytery 
NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS 
December 31, 1990 



NOTE 1 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES 

The significant accounting policies of Salem Presbytery (hereinafter referred 
to as the "Presbytery") are described below to enhance the usefulness of the 
financial statements to the reader. 

fund accounting 

To ensure observance of limitations and restrictions placed on the use of 
resources available to the Presbytery, the accounts are maintained in accordance 
with the principles of fund accounting. This is a procedure by which resources 
are classified for accounting and reporting purposes into funds established 
according to their nature and purpose. 

The Presbytery's funds are as follows: 

General Fund - this fund accounts for unrestricted resources that are 
available for the support and operation of the office of the Presbytery. 

Restricted Fund - this fund accounts for all Presbyterian mission collections 
and disbursements and various donor restricted gifts. 

Loan and Grant Fund - this fund accounts for resources restricted to use for 
loans and grants to churches and loans to individuals. 

Plant Fund - this fund accounts for all property, plant and equipment owned 
by the Presbytery. 

Plant assets and depreciation 

Uses of general and other funds for plant acquisitions are accounted for as 
transfers to the Plant Fund. Proceeds from the sale of plant assets are 
transferred to the General Fund. Depreciation is provided over the estimated 
useful lives of the respective assets on a straight-line basis for the property, 
plani and equipment of the Presbytery office and Camp Grier. Camp New Hope and 
Presbyterian Point record no provision for depreciation which is not in accordance 
to Financial Accounting Standards Board Statement No. 93. 

The Presbytery also may hold title to various church properties located 
within, its boundaries for canonical purposes only. These properties are not 
included in the Plant Fund.

Salem Presbytery 
NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS 
December 31, 1990 



NOTE 1 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued) 

Support and revenues 

Due to the voluntary nature of Presbyterian mission support received from 
member churches, support is recognized when received by the Presbytery, except for 
support received in the two weeks following the year end, which is recognized in 
the year intended by the member churches. 



Pension plan 

The Presbytery participates in a pension fund for the employees and ministers 
administered by the Board of Pensions of the Presbyterian Church (USA) . 
Eligibility is determined by age, length of service and salary base. The pension 
expense for 1990 was $15,138 for the employees, and $18,364 for the ministers. 



Comparative Total (Memorandum Only) 

The total data are presented to facilitate financial analysis. The totals do 
not present financial position, results of operations, or changes in cash flow in 
conformity with generally accepted accounting principles. No consolidating or 
other eliminations were made in arriving at the totals; thus, they do not 
represent consolidated information. 



Reclassifications 



Certain items in the accompanying financial statements for 1989 have been 
reclassified in order to conform with the 1990 financial statement presentation.

NOTE 4 - INVESTMENT IN CAMPS 

The Presbytery acquired joint ownership of three camps from the antecedent 
presbyteries : 

Camp Grier - 33 1/3% ownership with the presbyteries of Western North Carolina and 
Charlotte; 

Camp New Hope - 50% ownership with the Presbytery of New Hope; and 

Presbyterian Point - 50% ownership with the Presbytery of New Hope. 

The Presbytery's investment in the camps is recorded in the Plant Fund at the 
book value of the property, plant and equipment of each camp. Annual subsidies to 
each camp in excess of capital improvements are recorded as current expenditures 
in the General Fund. 

Subsidies to each camp are as follows: 

1990 1989

NOTE 5 - TRANSFERS FROM ANTECEDENT PRESBYTERIES 

Effective December 31, 1988, the boundaries of 10 North Carolina Presbyteries 
were realigned to establish 5 new Presbyteries. Early in 1989, a transitional 
period occurred to allow the conclusion of the work of the antecedent Presbyteries 
and divisions of the property, plant and equipment of each Presbytery. The 
transfers from antecedent Presbyteries are net of subsequent obligations that 
arose after the disposition of assets to Salem Presbytery from the Presbyteries of 
Concord, Yadkin and Orange.

Budget and Finance Committee 
Salem Presbytery 
Clemmons , North Carolina 

Dear Committee Members: 

During the audit of the financial statements of Salem Presbytery for the year 
ended December 31, 1990, we encountered various problems concerning Camp New Hope 
and Presbyterian Point. These problems resulted in our issuance of an adverse 
opinion on the Plant Fund of Salem Presbytery for the year ended December 31, 
1990. 

BACKGROUND 

As a result of the realignment of Presbytery boundaries effective December 31, 
1988, the newly created Salem Presbytery acquired a 50% interest in Camp New Hope 
and Presbyterian Point (Camps) . The Presbytery of New Hope acquired the remaining 
50% interest. The financial records for these Camps are maintained by the 
treasurer of the Presbytery of New Hope and are audited as part of the Presbytery 
of New Hope. Their auditors provide us with the property, plant and equipment 
information for the Camps when the audited financial statements for the Presbytery 
of New Hope are issued. The results of operations for the Camps are provided to 
us by the treasurer of the Presbytery of New Hope. 

EFFECTS OF STATEMENT OF FINANCIAL ACCOUNTING STANDARDS NO. 93 

Effective for fiscal years beginning on or after January 1, 1990, generally 
accepted accounting principles require that not-for-profit organizations give 
recognition to depreciation of plant assets. We were aware that Camp New Hope and 
Presbyterian Point recorded no provision for depreciation in past years. In 
September 1991, we were aware that the auditors of the Presbytery of New Hope were 
reviewing the fixed asset records and incorrectly assumed that they were working 
toward compliance with Statement No. 93 for the year ended December 31, 1990. 

In November 1991, the auditors for the Presbytery of New Hope informed us that the 
Camps would not give recognition to depreciation of plant assets for the year 
ended December 31, 1990. The assets of these two camps represent 79% of Salem 
Presbytery's Plant Fund. The effect of not providing depreciation is material to 
the financial statements of the Plant Fund of Salem Presbytery.

December 2, 1991 



The auditors for the Presbytery of New Hope have indicated that it may be two to 
three years before this departure from generally accepted accounting principles is 
corrected. 

SUMMARY 

It is our understanding that the audit of the Presbytery of New Hope for the year 
ending December 31, 1990, did not begin until September 1991. The contracted date 
of completion was around November 20, 1991. We rely on the work of the other 
auditors and therefore cannot issue our audit report until we are provided the 
Camp information. 



We were informed that the Camps' financial records are such an integral part of 
the Presbytery of New Hope that they cannot be audited apart from that Presbytery. 
Unless the Presbytery of New Hope will agree to have its audit earlier and give 
recognition to depreciation for Camp New Hope and Presbyterian Point, Salem 
Presbytery will continue to have its audit issued nine or more months after year 
end with an adverse opinion on its plant fund. 

Sincerely,

SALEM PRESBYTERY COMMITMENT ON ACTION AGAINST GLOBAL HUNGER 

God our Creator has made the world for everyone, and desires that all shall have 
daily bread. God's prophets through the ages have pronounced judgment upon those 
who exploit and neglect the poor and the hungry. Jesus Christ our Savior 
identified with the world's poor and came to announce good news to them. The 
Holy Spirit is at work in the church, calling us to embody our Saviour's 
compasstion and struggle for justice. God seeks the reconciliation of peoples 
and nations whereby the cries of the hungry and oppressed shall be answered. 

The 1987 General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) has recognized the 
crisis of world hunger is of such proportions that it will be with us for decades 
to come. The gap is widening, not only between the rich and poor countries, but 
also between the rich and poor within both developed and developing nations. 
World hunger is one of the key issues with which humankind must deal for global 
survival in the last decade of the twentieth century. This crisis also exists 
in the nineteen counties within the boundaries of Salem Presbytery where: 

4 counties have from 8.8% to 10.0% poverty 

11 counties have from 10.1% to 14.8% poverty 

2 counties have from 14.9% to 20.0% poverty 

2 counties have from 25.1% to 30.5% poverty 

Therefore, in the face of the global crisis of hunger, and compelled by the Holy 
Spirit and by our faith in Jesus Christ, we now together affirm our commitment 
to this agenda for hunger action through the following: 

1. Development Assistance - We shall support hunger related development 
assistance programs which combat hunger through integrated development 
and empowerment of people, in such areas as agricultural training, 
community organizations, economic development, nutrition education, 
public health and family planning. 

2. Direct Food Relief - We shall provide food relief to hungry people 
through well-planned food assistance programs. 

3. Influencing Public Policy - As Christians we shall support policy 
changes which will provide food for poor and hungry people at home and 
abroad which empower their self -development . 

4. Life-style Integrity - We shall assist our members to move toward 
personal and corporate lifestyles which are sensitive to the reality of 
the earth's limited resources and the critical need of onver half the 
human family. 

5. Education and Interpretation - We shall seek to sensitize the churches 
in Salem Presbytery to a Biblical and theological understanding of 
hunger isssues and to the dimensions of the world hunger crisis. 

In response to the global crisis of hunger we commit to: 

- support the work of the Hunger Committee; 

- continue working with international partnerships and domestic projects 
by contributing generously to "Pennies for Hunger/Two Cents Per Meal"; 

- challenge our members to support the annual One Great Hour of Sharing 
and through year-round sacrificial giving; 

- encourage members to work with Presbyterian and ecumenical agencies to 
influence public policy (i.e., Bread for the World, etc.); 

- examine our life styles and change as convicted by the Holy Spirit; 

- study the Biblical context for responding to the World hunger crisis. 

We recognize the enormity of the task to which we are committing ourselves; yet 
we dare to act because we dare to hope. We who belong to the Church of our Lord 
Jesus now pledge to become the conscious instruments of Christ's judging and 
renewing action, praying that God's kingdom may come, God's will may be done that 
all the earth's children may be given daily bread.

4 SUPPORT COMMITTEE'S REPORT PRIOR TO ITS BEING GIVEN AT PRESBYTERY 
5 

6 This report contains the following: General introduction of the 

7 Partnership Concept 

8 Description of Position 

9 Questions and Answers about the 

10 Position 

11 General Concerns 

12 Small Church Specialist Description 

13 Person Description 
14 

15 

16 Who: Small Churches Seeking Ministers who will need salary support from 

17 the Small Church Support Committee in order to call a pastor. 
18 

19 What: Small Church and Salem Presbytery Partnership Program in which the 

20 call to the minister will be primary ministry in a small church and part- 

21 time work for Salem Presbytery as a Small Church Specialist. 
22 

23 When: At the beginning of a small church's search process, preferably 

24 before the Pastor Nominating Committee has been elected and the Session 
2 5 has approved terms of call and job description for the next pastor. 

25 

27 Where: The Danbury Community Church congregation has voted unanimously to 

28 increase their financial commitment from 1/2 time to 3/4 time and then 

29 adding another 1/4 of the minister's time which would be designated for 

30 presbytery work. This move by the Danbury congregation would boost them 

31 from a 1/2 time call, which has been difficult to fill, to a full time call 

32 and would mean they could have a Presbyterian minister living in their 

33 community. 
34 

35 Why: 1) in order to make some part-time calls into full-time calls 

36 providing small churches with a wider pool of ministers from whom to 

37 choose and cutting back on the extended pastor vacancy periods some of 

38 these churches have experienced in the past; 
39 

40 2 ) in order to get better usage of presbytery benevolence dollars by 

41 exchanging salary support dollars for minister's work for Salem Presbytery; 
42 

43 3) in order to more effectively cover particular areas of presbytery 

44 resourcing and support currently needed but not available due to time 

45 limitations on existing staff; 
46 

47 4) in order to continue to support small churches who want and need 

48 ministers who will live in their community and help them maintain their 

49 Presbyterian identity and commitment; 
50 

51 5) in order to encourage small churches who have the will and potential to 

52 grow and build up to self-sufficiency with the leadership of a talented 

53 and committed minister; and 
54 

55 6} in order to address the reality of presbytery's budget constraints and 

56 ongoing concern that Salem churches not be dependent, financial recipients. 
57 

58 Other Pertinent information: 

59 30 small churches requested salary support in 1992. Not all of them 

60 received money, and almost all of them received less than they requested. 

61 At the July meeting of presbytery the minimum terms of call for ministers 

62 was increased by approximately $1000.00 for 1992. There are seven churches 

63 currently looking for ministers who will require salary support once they 



227 



64 have called a minister and will be looking to the Small Church Support 

65 Committee for partnership in that financial commitment. 

66 

67 Partnership Program 
68 

69 POSITION: Pastor of Danbury Community Church 3/4 time 

70 Small Church Specialist for Salem Presbytery 1/4 time 
71 

72 RELATIONSHIPS: The Minister in this position's work time is to be divided 

73 3/4 time to the congregation nerved and 1/4 time with the 

74 Presbytery. 
75 

76 For this position a minister must be called both by election of Presbytery 

77 upon nomination by its representatives on the Pastor Nominating Committee 

78 and by election of the congregation to be served. Two members of the Small 

79 Church Support Committee will serve on the PNC along with the five members 

80 elected by the Danbury congregation. 
81 

82 A Small Church Specialist this minister will work closely with the 

83 Associate Presbyter for Care and Development of Leadership whose duties 

84 include staffing the Small Church Support Committee. 
85 

86 He or she will work in direct collaboration with the Small Church Support 

87 Committee. 
88 

89 THE CHURCH 

90 The pastor's first responsibility shall be to Danbury Community Church and 

91 he/she will perform all ministerial functions and live in the community. 

92 It is understood that the priority of attention is to the congregation 

93 served as pastor. Providing regular worship and responding to urgent 

94 pastoral needs will receive first attention. 
95 

96 THE SMALL CHURCH COMMITTEE 

97 Pastor will work regularly with the Small Church Support Committee 

98 Pastor will attend all Small Church Support Committee meetings

110 Small Church Support Committee and approved by the Council and Presbytery. 

111 EVALUATION: Annual performance evaluation by the Personnel Committee of 

112 Salem Presbytery. At the end of the three year term a comprehensive review 

113 and evaluation would be made. (We would like to recommend that one member 

114 of the Small Church Support Committee be made a member of the Personnel 

115 Committee. ) 
116 

117 Annually the Personnel and Small Church Support Committee will consult with 

118 the Session of the Danbury Church to assess how the partnership ministry 

119 arrangement is working to the benefit of the church. 
120 

121 DURATION: Funding shall be made available for a 3 year period; however, 

122 the call may be terminated before 3 years or extended longer depending upon 

123 the circumstance of the church. 
124 

125 TERMINATION: By mutual consent of the minister, the congregation of which 

126 she or he is pastor and Presbytery: or by action of Presbytery, upon the 

127 written recommendation of the Personnel and Small Church Support Committee 

128 or the Committee on Ministry. Fair and adequate notification shall be 

129 given to the minister, as well as to the congregation and the Presbytery. 



228 



130 SUPERVISION: All Program Staff of Salem Presbytery are under the super- 

131 vision of Executive Presbyter, John Handley. 
132 

133 TITLE: He or she shall be called "Small Church Specialist" 

134 

135 

136 QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS REGARDING PARTNERSHIP PROGRAM 

137 1) What Church will benefit from this position? 
138 

139 The Danbury Church of North Carolina will join with Salem Presbytery in 

140 seeking a person to help both parties. The Danbury Church will pay 3/4 

141 of the salary package and Salem Presbytery's Small Church Support 

142 Committee will pay 1/4 of the salary package. 
143 

144 2) How much time with the person spend working with Salem Presbytery? 
145 

146 We envision work with Salem Presbytery to average 40 hours a month based 

147 upon receipt of 1/4 of the salary. The person will be expected to work 

148 regularly with the Small Church Committee and with the staff of the 

149 Presbytery. 
150 

151 3) What skills will be required of the person? 
152 

153 We are looking for a person who will be a specialist in the Small Church 

154 field. The person would have skills in needs assessment and in congrega- 

155 tional revitalization. 
156 

157 4) Who will assess the work of this person? 
158 

159 The person will be under the supervision of John Handley and will work with 

160 Carter Shelley. The position will be evaluated on a yearly basis as with 

161 other staff. 
162 

163 5) What will this position cost the Presbytery? 
164 

165 Presently a number of churches receive aid to help pay the salary of a 

166 minister. This proposal will not change that equation. It does mean that 

167 the Presbytery will directly benefit from the aid money given. 
168 

169 6) What salary is presently envisioned? 
170 

171 Presently we are pursuing a goal of seeking a minister based upon the 

172 minimum salary of Salem Presbytery. However, a person may be found who is 

173 so well qualified that a higher salary may be required. If so, the salary 

174 figure will be discussed with the Small Church Support Committee before any 

175 final decision is made. In any case, the Small Church Support Committee 

176 will work within the framework of its budget. 
177 

178 7) Why is this position needed? 
179 

180 We have averaged 20 churches vacant during any quarter of the year. Carter 

181 Shelley is working with these churches along with volunteer help in the 

182 form of Calls and Vacancy Liaisons. Contact is made with these churches 

183 during times of vacancy, through Small Church Support Committee visits, its 

184 annual retreat, at the salary support hearings, in times of emergency, and 

185 by visits from Carter Shelley as work load and time permit; however, there 

186 are 82 churches in Salem Presbytery which come under the designation 

187 "small". Whether seeking ministerial leadership during times of vacancy 

188 or seeking to continue as viable churches in their communities, these 

189 churches need and deserve more time and attention than the Associate for 

190 Care and Development of Leadership, and the Small Church Support Committee 

191 are able to provide. It is felt that a person specializing in small church 

192 revitalization would insure a ministry of outreach and assistance to small 

193 churches that is urgently needed and currently not feasible. This 

194 individual's work would greatly assist churches who need help to move 



229 



195 beyond maintenance to a greater vision of mission and ministry in the 

196 churches and the communities they serve. 
197 

198 8) How long will this trial position last? 
199 

200 We expect a three year covenant with a yearly evaluation of progress. It 

201 is hoped that as time progresses the Danbury Church may be able to increase 

202 its percentage of salary support and increase the percentage of time spent 

203 with the congregation, it is also hopiid that eventually the Danbury Church 

204 will become fully self supporting. (In the event of Danbury reaching self 

205 supporting status another small church which was open to a similar arrange- 

206 u would be identified and the partnership formed with them and the next 

207 minister called to this church.) 
208 

209 9) How will you search for the right person? 
210 

211 We will engage the services of 

212 (1) persons such as Jim Cushman and Carl Dudley, experts in the Small 

213 Church Development field, 

214 (2) institutions such as our seminaries, 

215 (3) the regular channels such as "Face-to-Face" , etc. and 

216 (4) advertise in Monday Morning and the Presbyterian Outlook . 
217 

218 10) Who will pay Small Church Specialist related expenses such as travel 

219 and programming? 
220 

221 Presbytery related expenses such as mileage and programming costs will be 

222 underwritten from the Small Church Support Committee's budget. 
223 

224 

225 Partnership Ministry 

226 

227 General 
228 

229 The minister will work three-quarters time as pastor of the Danbury con- 

230 gregation and one-guarter time as staff person for Salem Presbytery as a 

231 Small Church Specialist. 
232 

233 The minister's office for both congregational work and Presbytery work 

234 will be the church office. While there will be time away from the office 

235 for Presbytery work (as well as for pastoral work within the congregation), 

236 his or her main office for all work will be wherever the church office is. 
237 

238 The person will live in housing provided in proximity to the church. 
239 

240 Since the minister will be working 3/4 time as pastor it will be important 

241 for the pastor and the church to be in agreement on priorities regarding 

242 use of her or his time within the congregation, as well as priorities which 

243 will be carried out by elders and members of the congregation. The pastor 

244 and session will need to monitor time use continually, to assure meeting 

245 the church's ongoing needs and to avoid the frustration of overload on the 

246 part of the pastor, elders and other members. 
247 

248 Presbytery responsibilities will not interfere with the pastor's avail- 

249 ability to the congregation for worship and other Sunday morning 

250 activities. 
251 

252 Pastoral emergencies and other pressing pastoral needs in the congregation 

253 take priority over Presbytery responsibilities in the minister's use of 

254 time. 
255 

256 It will be important for the Session and the minister to work out means to 

257 assure accessibility of the minister to the congregation. Such accessi- 

258 bility may include such things as use of a telephone answering service, car 

259 phone or answering machine, and regularly sharing the pastor's out-of- 

260 office time commitments with the congregation. 



230 



261 Since time is to be shared between church and Presbytery, financial support 

262 is anticipated to be shared 3/4 by the church and 1/4 from the Small Church 

263 Support Committee. 
264

1. Hunger Committee 

2. Church Development Committee 

3. Budget and Finance Committee 



II. ACTIONS TAKEN BY COUNCIL:

Presbytery. 



5 



On November 19, 1991, John Milholland presented the results of the 
annual audit, noting the adverse opinion on the portion of the financial 
statements that have to do with the plant assets of camps New Hope and 
Presbyterian Point. 

Council accepted the audit of Witherington, Wells, Moose and Martin and 
adopted the following motion: 

"That the matter of the auditor's report be referred to the Executive 
Committee to discuss fiscal policies of New Hope Presbytery as they 
relate to Salem Presbytery, and more specifically the adverse comments 
relative to requirements of depreciation schedules at the various camps 
as required by accepted accounting practices." 

The auditing firm has provided the attached management letter. 
(Appendix D, pp. 44-45.) 

Council later reviewed letters to and from New Hope Presbytery 
concerning the adverse opinion on the portion of Salem's financial 
statements that have to do with the plant assets of Camp New Hope and 
Presbyterian Point. 

3. Council is monitoring several consultations with Synod involving matters 
of concern to Salem. 

a. Consultation on Synod Priorities is exploring streamlining and 
focusing the mission of Synod to address matters crucial to the 
region and shift several duties to and from the presbyteries so as 
to work together more effectively. Bob Matthews and John Handley 
attended. 

b. Consultation on Higher Education had campus ministry as its primary 
focus. Synod is seen as playing a key role in this ministry. Rocky 
Ward, Stewart Ellis, Tom Lane, Martha Lou Anderson and John Handley 
attended . 

c. Consultation on Institutions looked at proposals that would 
redistribute responsibilities and financial support between Synod 
and its presbyteries. Colleges, Children's Homes, and Homes for the 
Aging were the primary foci. Murray White, Karen Pearson and John 
Handley attended. 

4. Council approved, at the request of the Budget and Finance Committee, a 
$1,000 grant to Harmony Presbyterian Church for renovation of the 
kitchen/ fellowship area of the church. (Source of Funding: Knox 
Abernethy Endowment Funds . ) 

5. The Council approved a $1,500 grant for the purchase of a Telex sound 
enhancement system for the Korean Church. This system would allow 30 
non-speaking Koreans to have translating of /participation in the worship 
services. (Source of Funding: Knox Abernethy Endowment Funds.) The 
Committee suggests also that some less expensive alternative might be 
explored. 

6. Concerning Outdoor Ministries: 

Council concurred with three recommendations of the Outdoor Ministries 
Division, one involving a personnel procedure for New Hope/Presbyterian 
Point, another involving Goals for Camp Grier, and a third aimed at 
completing state-mandated repairs to the Lake Susan dam.

(8) persons: Salem Division Moderator, New Hope Unit Chairman, 
Presbytery Executive of Salem and New Hope, one member from the 
Personnel Committee of Salem and New Hope, and one "at- large" person 
from Salem and New Hope. Council will implement the appointments.

its facilities. Council approved their request to borrow up to 
$800,000.00 for a construction loan and up to $300,000.00 for a long 
term loan and to permit mortgaging of the property as security for 
the loans . 



III. ACTIONS OF PRESBYTERY: 

At the meeting of Salem Presbytery on July 13, 1991, Presbytery took the 
following action regarding unused budgeted benevolence: 

"All year-end unused budgeted benevolence available for Presbytery's use 
shall be spent in the following manner: First, commitments to General 
Assembly and Synod shall be fulfilled including restoring the 1/2% 1992 
reduction for General Assembly and Synod. Second, any unused funds in 
excess of our commitments to General Assembly and Synod shall be used at the 
discretion of the Presbytery upon recommendation of the Presbytery Council 
in consultation with the Finance Committee." 

At its meeting on October 1, 1991, Salem Presbytery took the following 
action regarding church development funds carried over into 1992: 



8 



"Any funds left in the 1991 working budget will be transferred to Church 
Development Account #43640 for 1992, so that it might be used for new church 
development in the Greensboro area."

4, page 188) regarding church development funds carried over into

ADMINISTRATIVE SERVICES DIVISION 



PERSONNEL COMMITTEE 
Rosa Yourse, Moderator 

The triennial evaluation for Dr. John Handley, Executive Presbyter/Stated Clerk, 
Salem Presbytery was conducted by the Personnel Committee on December 2, 1991. 

To gather information for the assessment, the Committee sent evaluation forms in 
the Sampler to Pastors, Educators, and Sessions within the Presbytery in an 
effort to get a broad sampling of responses. Additional forms were sent to 
individuals suggested by Dr. Handley. 

The review was based upon information received from respondents who have known 
Dr. Handley for a period ranging from 1 - 36 years under a variety of 
circumstances (i.e. Friend, Neighbor, Fellow Student, Fellow Clergy, Associate 



9 



and Executive Presbyter, Advisor, Committee Chair, Committee Member, and Clerk 
of Session) • Additional insights were derived from Staff Personnel, Members of 
the Personnel Committee, and Dr. Handley's self appraisal. 

Responses provided by respondents were varied and candid. A sampling of comments 
expressed include: 

- A person of Christian integrity deeply committed to his ministry and all 
people are touched by it. Respected and appreciated for the job he is 
doing 

- Motivated, realistic, aware of limitations but willing to use his 
imagination 

- Possesses strength and depth; He is open and sharing, values honesty in 
dealing with conflict in the church 

- Strengths are in his conciliatory, pastoral spirit, and deep 
understanding of the church 

- Serves Presbytery and its constituencies faithfully in light of his 
understanding of the Gospel 

- Does not answer questions of persons in small churches; does not return 
telephone calls; is not available to receive calls 

- Need to delegate more 

- Over extended because the Presbytery is over organized and attempting to 
do too much with too few people and dollars 

- Well suited to his position — temperamentally ideal for a difficult job — 
"DON'T LOSE JOHN" 1 

- Excellent leadership qualities; ability to persuade you to action even 
when you feel you can't do the task 

The Committee is thankful for and fully utilized all assessments submitted by 
respondents in the decision making process. 

An overwhelming majority of the responses were positive and rated Dr. Handley as 
an effective and productive leader and administrator. His commitment to Christ 
and church, ability to articulate his faith and ideas, conciliatory and 
interpersonal skills, experience, and positive attitude are his greatest 
strengths . 

The review further revealed that accessibility, returning telephone calls, and 
delegation of responsibility are areas that may require a greater concentration. 

Notwithstanding, the vast responsibilities associated with the position, the 
review disclosed that Salem Presbytery has flourished under Dr. Handley's 
leadership and guidance. 

The Rev. Carter Shelley, Associate Presbyter for Care and Development of 
Leadership, has tendered her resignation effective June 30, 1992, to enter 
Graduate School on a full time basis. Although the Personnel Committee respects 
her decision, she will be sorely missed and her departure will leave a void in 
the Presbytery. We are appreciative of her invaluable contribution and wish her 
well in her endeavors. 



ACTIONS : 

4. Dr. John Handley was elected to an additional three-year term as 
Executive Presbyter and Stated Clerk commencing January 1, 1992, and 
continuing through December 31, 1994. 

5. Salem Presbytery commended Dr. Handley for his work over the past 
three years, and a prayer of thanksgiving and intercession was 
offered for him at an appropriate time during the meeting. 

6. The Rev. Carter Shelley's resignation was accepted to be effective 
June 30, 1992.

CHURCH DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE 
Bill Hylton, Moderator 



MISSION DESIGN STATEMENT: 

In October 1991, we presented a Mission Design Statement for new church 
development which included "Biblical and Theological Considerations and A 
Philosophy of Mission in Church Development." This design was referred back to 
our committee to study amendments presented at Presbytery which dealt 
specifically with the calling of a pastor. 

The Church Development committee examined these amendments and determined that 
they deal essentially with interim pastors being highlighted in the section on 
"Organizing Pastor". Upon further reexamination of the General Assembly 
guidelines the committee felt that to stay with a more general description of 
possible persons to serve as "organizing pastor" in a church development project 
was more desirable. This would allow flexibility in the calling of an organizing 
pastor . 

NEW CHURCH DEVELOPMENT: 

The New Church Development Steering Committee established in the October meeting 
of Presbytery has been very active! They have met, surveyed the area and 
selected a potential site on which to build a church to serve the Oakridge 
community. Negotiations are underway for possible acquisition of a site. 

CHURCH REDEVELOPMENT: 

More than a year ago members of the Sedgefield Presbyterian Church came before 
our committee with a plan for revitalizing this 207 member congregation as a 
redevelopment opportunity. Over a year and a half have been spent in research, 
evaluation and program design. The church employed a consultant to evaluate and 
recommend its growth potential and hired a fundraiser from the Church Financial 
Campaign Services of the General Assembly to assist in fundraising efforts. We 
applaud the efforts of this congregation in following the redevelopment process. 
The committee enthusiastically approved and the council endorsed presbytery's 
approval of recommendations 3, 4, and 5. 



ACTIONS : 

8. The Mission Design for New Church Development was adopted as 
originally presented; (Appendix F, pp. 49-64.) 

9. Ms. Linda Kershner and Mr. Herbert Reece was appointed to the NCD 
Steering Committee to replace Ms. Bonnie Burkette and Bill Hylton. 
(Bill will continue to serve in an ex-officio capacity); 

10. Approval was given to the Sedgefield Presbyterian Church to mortgage 
their property up to $800,000; $300,000 of this loan will be covered 
by a long term mortgage with $500,000 to be repaid on a short term 
basis; 

11. The Sedgefield Presbyterian Church loan application for $45,000 in 
Interest Support Funds from General Assembly was approved; 

12. Presbtery approved a $25,000 grant to Sedgefield Church to aid them 
in this project and lend Presbytery's support for the process of 
redevelopment . 



BICENTENNIAL FUND 

Murray White presented an up-date on the Salem Presbytery Bicentennial Fund 
Campaign.

CELEBRATION OP HONORABLE RETIREMENT 

Presbytery joined in a service of Honorable Retirement for the Reverend James H. 
Banbury, the Reverend Edwin C. Brammer, Jr., the Reverend J. Stimson Hawkins, the 
Reverend Frank A. Davison, and the Reverend Donald Mimbs. After hearing from 
persons who spoke of the contributions to the Church of each retiree, John 
Handley presented each with a framed Certificate of Retirement on behalf of the 
Presbytery. 



WORSHIP AND COMMUNION 

At 11:45 a.m. the Presbytery joined in a service of Worship and Communion led by 
the Rev. Steve McCutchan and the Rev. Kellie Weekley. The preacher was the Rev. 
James Henderson. The Rev. John Mendez, pastor of the Emmanuel Baptist Church 
also participated in the service. Mr. Henry Tysinger was the organist. During 
the worship, thanks was given for the Ministers and Elders of the Presbytery who 
have died since October, 1990. 

LUNCH 

The Presbytery was recessed for lunch at 12:45 p.m. with prayers of thanksgiving 
led by Ivan Lowery. 



AFTERNOON SESSION 

At 1:55 p.m. the Moderator reconvened the Presbytery and prayer of dedication for 
the Two-Cents-A-Meal Offering and prayers of petition and intercession were led 
by George Carpenter. 



SEXUAL HARASSMENT/MISCONDUCT POLICY 

Laura Spangler reported for the Task Force assigned to study the General Assembly 
Policy and Procedures on Sexual Misconduct paper. (Appendix G, pp. 65-66.) 



ACTIONS : 

13. The existing Task Force was dismissed with thanks. 

14. The Moderator of Salem Presbytery was empowered to appointed a 
Composition Committee to write a "Policy and Procedures for Church 
Leaders Accused of Sexual Misconduct". The Composition Committee 
would be composed of persons offering the following resources and 
wisdom: 

A North Carolina attorney well versed in N.C. law pertaining to 

sexual misconduct 

A theologian 

A pastoral counselor 

A psychologist 

A Book of Order expert * 
A Victim (volunteer basis only) 
A presbytery staff person 

It is vital that persons on this committee also offer representation 
of the male, female, clergy, laity, and racial minority perspective.

REPORT OF THE EXAMINATIONS COMMITTEE 
Steve Shive, Moderator 

Presbytery proceeded with the examination of Robert Earl Cleveland, II, Robert 
Joe Goforth, Douglas A. Home, Morton R. Kurtz, and William Sims Metzel, who wish 
to transfer into Salem Presbytery. They have been examined and approved by the 
Examinations Committee of Salem Presbytery. 



RECEPTION OF ROBERT EARL CLEVELAND, II 



ACTION: 

15. Presbytery approved the committee and floor examination of Robert 
Earl Cleveland, II in accordance with Book of Order G-11.0402. 

a. The Reverend Bob Cleveland was received into Salem Presbytery 
from New Hope Presbytery so that he may accept the call of the 
Pittsboro Presbyterian church as pastor. The effective date is 
January 1, 1992. Please note that this is a half-time call. 

b. His credo which follows, was approved: 

My faith begins when I find myself - a sinful creature 
enmeshed in a fallen world. My sin is the belief that I am 
capable of realizing perfection through my own efforts, without 
assistance from anyone or anything outside myself. Thankfully, 
by the grace of God I am capable of recognizing the fact that 
sin alienates me from my creator and from my fellow creatures, 
and that I cannot become a whole person without reconciliation. 

The life, death, and resurrection of Jesus the Christ 
reveals to me the means of reconciliation. Christ, being 
somehow both human and divine, shows me, by His humanity, what 
it means to live "even unto death" according to God's 
commandments. By his divinity, he provides a glimpse of the 
sovereign, loving God who invites me to be one of His children. 
This God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob mercifully forgives my 
errant ways and frees me from the bondage of sin to try again to 
live as a disciple of Jesus. With the assurance of His unending 
love, I am aware of the comforting presence and power of the 
Holy Spirit who guides my thoughts, directs my actions, and 
gives me strength and endurance to carry out God ' s purpose for 
my life on this earth. 

From this sure and certain conviction of a providential, 
loving, and forgiving God, I derive the following beliefs: 
That Holy Scripture is the Word of God, recorded by those who, 
with divine inspiration, perceived God's intervention in human 
history. As the Word of God, scripture is the infallible guide 
for my life and faith; 

That the Church is the Body of Christ on this earth, which 
continues His mission to preach the Gospel and to "bring good 
tidings to the afflicted, bind up the broken hearted, proclaim 
liberty to the captives, and open the prison to those who are 
bound" ; 

14 



That the polity and doctrine of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) 
reflects the confessional, covenantal, and connectional 
foundations of the Christian Faith; 

That the sacrament of Baptism signifies God's grace in calling 
people of all ages into the nurturing fellowship and community 
of the Body of Christ. Through partaking the elements of the 
sacrament of the Lord's Supper I am forcibly reminded of Jesus' 
atoning death on the cross and, at the same time, nourished and 
refreshed to follow Him along the Way toward the Kingdom of God. 
This is my faith and these are my beliefs at this point in my 
life. I pray God may grant that I grow in wisdom and 
understanding of His Word, and that my faltering attempts to be 
a servant of our Lord Jesus Christ may, in some way, further His 
purpose in this troubled world. 

c. Presbytery approved the establishment of a Pastoral relationship 
between Mr. Cleveland and the Pittsboro Presbyterian Church 
effective January 1, 1992; approved the following Terms of Call; 
and the call was ordered placed in his hands.

RECEPTION OF ROBERT JOE GOFORTH 



ACTION: 



16. Presbytery approved the committee and floor examination of Robert 
Joe Goforth in accordance with Book of Order G-11.0402. 

a. The Reverend Robert Joe Goforth was received into Salem 
Presbytery from Charlotte Presbytery so that he may accept the 
call of the Cooleemee Presbyterian Church as Pastor. 



15 



Robert has recently been pastor of the McLean and Rourk 
Presbyterian Churches of Ellerbe. 

b. His credo which follows, was approved: 

I believe in God the Father , the Son and the Holy Spirit. 
The Father is the creator and master over all things, time and 
space also. The Father loves creation so much that the Father 
allows us to experience good and bad and to test our limits so 
we can gain a rich and far reaching understanding of just how 
great and powerful the Creator really is. 

The Father loves us so much that He sent his only son, 
Jesus, to be conceived by the Holy Spirit and born by a virgin. 
The son was tempted and felt the pain and challenge that 
basically face all humans, but from a deeper proportion, Jesus 
truly had the weight or the world upon Him. He preached and 
taught to crowds and to individual needs at all types of places 
and conditions. He healed the sick, made the blind to see, 
raised the dead and always loved and forgave even the very worst 
sinner. 

The Son suffered and was crucified by sinful mankind. He 
was raised by the Father on the third day. He appeared before 
many people to drive home the point of love and forgiveness to 
make sure that His followers would go out with a message of love 
and hope. 

The Son ascended into heaven. The Father and the Son sent 
a comforter to always be with us during all circumstances. The 
Spirit helps us to celebrate the victory that Jesus Christ gave 
up upon the cross and the resurrection on Easter morning. The 
Spirit also convicts of hearts and minds when we sin and have 
not put forth our best effort for God's glory. 

The Holy Spirit is the continuation of the redemptive 
process in the world. His work goes on perpetually 
accomplishing and fulfilling this will of God. Thus the Spirit 
does through the use of truth, the word of God, reveal and is 
recorded by Him whether in the process of conversion or of 
spiritual development. 

The church is the members of the congregation and not the 
building which we usually call a church. Jesus Christ is the 
head of the church. There are many parts of the church and many 
are quite different in various ways. This comes from various 
blessings that the Father, Son and Spirit have given to 
different parts. 

I believe that I am labeled conservative among my peers, 
but liberal compared to the churches that I have served. 

I believe all Scripture is by God and profitable for 
teaching, for reproof, for correction for training in 
righteousness . 

I believe I was and still am called by God to be a minister 
in His church. It was my choice to be a minister in the 
P. C. U.S. A. 

c. Presbytery approved the establishment of a Pastoral relationship

RECEPTION OF DOUGLAS A. HORNE 



ACTION: 

17. Presbytery approved the committee and floor examination of Douglas 
A. Home in accordance with Book of Order G-11.0402. 

a. The Reverend Doug Home was received into Salem Presbytery from 
Scioto Valley Presbytery in Ohio as a member engaged in other 
work. Doug is presently at North Carolina Baptist Hospital in 
the Pastoral Care Department. He is accepting an Interim 
position at the Danbury Community Church of Danbury. 

b. His credo which follows, was approved: 

I believe in God the creator of the earth and the heavens. 
God spoke and by that word alone brought into being all that is 
and brought order out of chaos. And God called it good. Out of 
love God created humankind in God's own image. Male and female, 
we were created to love, serve and enjoy God. Given dominion 
over the rest of creation we are called on by God to provide 
faithful stewardship, ensuring the prudent use and equitable 
distribution of its resources. 

From the beginning God intended that humanity be in 
communion with one another and with God. But like a loving 
parent God chose not to force acceptance but rather allowed 
humankind the free choice of how to respond. Unfortunately, 
human nature prized personal pride and selfishness above the 
love of God. Given the choice humankind chose the way of sin, 
rejecting God's love and sovereignty. Humanity proved incapable 
of living in complete communion with God. As a result of this 
separation from God, the very source and author of all life, 
death entered the world. 

Though forsaken by humanity God continued to love all of 
creation and longed for reconciliation with it. Historically, 
God's desire was made known through the covenant promises to the 
people of Israel who, though wayward and wandering, were 
consistently called back into relationship with God. But just 
as consistently, the world continued to deny God's claim. 

Out of love and a desire for reconciliation God chose to 
enter into human existence and share in its suffering by 
becoming incarnate in the person of Jesus of Nazareth. Through 
Jesus' life, death and resurrection God's essential nature and 



17 



chaxacter and the depth of God's love were revealed. By Jesus' 
death and resurrection the power of sin to divide God from 
creation was overcome and a right relationship, that not even 
death could destroy, was restored. 

In spite of Christ's reconciling work, creation still 
strains under the burden of sin. Recognizing the struggle, God 
continues to share in it through the power of the Holy Spirit. 
The Church as the body of Christ stands as a visible sign of the 
invisible reality of God's presence with and for us. Guided by 
the Holy Scriptures, through which God's word is most reliably 
revealed, the Church is empowered to continue the reconciling 
work begun in Christ until such time as the kingdom comes in all 
its fullness. That work includes maintaining communion with God 
through constant prayer; gathering for worship and study; 
ministering to the needs of our neighbor; proclaiming the 
newness of life which is ours through Christ; and calling for 
the repentance of individuals and societies bent on destructive 
ways . 

In the sacraments of Baptism and Communion the Church 
acknowledges and continues the work begun in Christ. In infant 
baptism, in particular, we are reminded of God's grace in 
calling us when we were unable to help ourselves and apart from 
God we continue to be helpless in the face of sin. In communion 
we remember God's constant sacrifice and affirm God's undying 
love. We celebrate the unity in faith of all believers at every 
time and in every place in Ospite of our differences. And in so 
doing we proclaim the coming of God's kingdom. 

c. Mr. Horne was instructed to sign the obligations required of a 
minister to be enrolled in Presbytery. 



RECEPTION OF MORTON R. KURTZ 



ACTION: 

18. The Reverend Morton Kurtz was received into Salem Presbytery from 
New Hope Presbytery as honorably retired. Morton lives in 
Burlington and wishes to have opportunities for ministry within our 
presbytery. 

a. His credo which follows, was approved: 

I was blessed to have a father and mother who loved me, 
were morally upright and believed in God. However, one all- 
important ingredient was lacking: they were not Christians; so, 
even though I was sent to Sunday School briefly in my early 
years, I grew up not knowing Jesus Christ. 

I was, therefore, totally unprepared spiritually for my 
father's death which occurred when I was 19 and still at home. 
But God was working in all that happened. Through a series of 
events that only He could have orchestrated, I came to a 
knowledge of my lost condition, received the glorious news that 
Jesus had died for my sin, and found my life changed forever. 

With all the enthusiasm of a newborn child of God, I knew 
my life's work was to be in full-time Christian service. Many 
obstacles presented themselves, but the Lord had His hand on me 
and had led me now for over 50 years in the Gospel ministry. 
Without attempting any comparison to the great apostles, I can 
join Paul from the heart in saying "I know whom I have believed, 
and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have 
committed unto him against that day." 



18 



The Bible, augmented by my personal experience of God's 
grace, is the basis of my belief. The Bible, to me, is the 
inspired Word of God, the one true guidebook for the Church of 
Jesus Christ and for its individual members. In this book, I 
come to know God to be the Almighty One, Creator of heaven and 
earth, existing forever, holy and righteous, hating sin yet 
merciful to the repentant sinner. I came to know Jesus Christ 
to be God's only Son, who existed with His Father from the very 
beginning — before creation. He "became flesh", that is, a human 
being, being born of Mary, but not conceived by man but by the 
Holy Spirit. As truly God and truly man, Jesus was able to meet 
both God's need for holiness and man's need for salvation from 
sin by taking our place on the cross and being offered up for 
us. He died and was buried, but on the third day he rose from 
the tomb and is now at God's right hand from which place he will 
come, in God's appointed time, to judge the world and reign as 
"king of kings." In His death and resurrection Jesus broke 
forever the power of sin and death over all who believe. I 
believe in the Holy Spirit as the third Person in the Godhead. 
There is but one God; the Son and the Holy Spirit have their 
function yet work in perfect accord with God. The Spirit, sent 
by Christ after his resurrection, guides believers into all 
truth and is always with them. 

I believe in the Church as the body of Christ, universal, 
truly one regardless of human divisions, whether of race, 
gender, nationality, or denomination. From the church I have 
experienced fellowship at its best. His sacraments of baptism 
and the Lord's Supper are both outward signs of God's inward 
grace and deeply meaningful expressions of obedience to Christ. 
In baptism, I followed my Lord in obedience to His example. As 
a pastor, I baptize others in obedience to His command to "go 
into all the world and make disciples. .. .baptizing them in the 
name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit." I take the 
Lord's Supper in obedience to Jesus' command to love one another 
as He loved us, which reminds me of His death on the cross for 
my sin. I partake in communion with Christ and fellow 
believers . 

I recognize that being a disciple of Jesus calls for 
continuing growth in knowledge of His will for my life and in 
growing obedience to Him. This process must continue until that 
day when I shall see him face to face. 

b. Mr. Kurtz was instructed to sign the obligations required of a 
minister to be enrolled in Presbytery. 



RECEPTION OF WILLIAM SIMS METZEL 



ACTION: 

19. The Reverend William Sims Metzel was received into Salem Presbytery 
from the Presbytery of the James for the purpose of accepting the 
call as Pastor of the Francisco and Collinstown Presbyterian 
Churches of Westfield, NC. The effective date is November 1, 1991. 

Since 1981 Bill has done missionary work in Zaire. He is a graduate 
of Washington and Lee University, attended Columbia Theological 
Seminary, and has a B.D. and Th.M. from Union Theological Seminary 
in Richmond. 

a. His credo which follows, was approved: 

Who is Jesus? Finding the answer to this question is what 
opened up the Christian faith for me. As a young person I put 



19 



this question on a back burner. On the eve of graduation from 
college, unsure of what to do with my life, I attended a 
conference on Christian vocation. I heard God speaking to me 
for the first time through the words of Jesus in Matthew 6:24- 
33, particularly the words "Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and 
His righteousness." I saw I had to put God and His will first 
in my life and let other priorities follow. I took a job in 
industry without a big future but one I felt God showed me. 
Studying the New Testament became very important. I became a 
regular church goer. At last I saw it was true what the Church 
had been saying all along - that Jesus is indeed the Son of God, 
God Himself, in fact, came down among us a man, that He could, 
indeed, pay for the sins of all humankind by His death on the 
cross, and I knew that I was a sinner for whom He died. I 
accepted Him as Savior and Lord. It seemed to me a whole new 
life opened before me. I did not lose my long time interest in 
trying to improve the lot of poor and hurting people in this 
world, but now it made sense because I knew God is with His 
people helping us to do this. I joined the church where I was. 
Within months I knew that what I wanted to do most with my life 
was tell others the great good news of Jesus. 

Key words around which I can summarize my beliefs are 
forgiveness, life and grace. 

(1) Forgiveness was the door by which I entered the faith. 
When I finally recognized I am a sinner and the seriousness of 
sin and that Christ died to deliver us from it, I was glad to 
turn away from the wrong things in my life to believe in and 
follow Him. To me the greatest joy in life as a Christian is to 
know one is forgiven. 

(2) Life is what I have now that I am in Christ - new life, 
real life, eternal life. It is terribly important that it 
continues after death. It is also terribly important that it 
begins when we believe in Christ and is to be lived here on 
earth for the glory of God while we're here. We live now in a 
new relationship with God - as His children, responsible to live 
in love and obedience to Him. We also live in a new 
relationship to our fellow human beings , i.e. we are to love 
them, for Christ loves them, and He died for them, too. We live 
in hope because we know that despite the suffering and evil in 
the world, Christ has won the victory, and He is coming again to 
set all things right. 

In our lives as Christians, God has called us to live and 
witness together as a body, the Church . We are to be engaged in 
mission , i.e. to witness to the love of God in Jesus and to 
beseech men and women to be reconciled to God through Him. The 
witness is to begin at home and to extend to all peoples on 
earth. An integral part of our witness is our "social witness," 
i.e. we must take into account that what we do or fail to do 
about human needs all around us heavily impacts the way our 
words come across and, in fact, is part of our message. 

(3) Grace is a convenient concept around which to group 
five other aspects of my faith: the gift of the Holy Spirit, 
prayer, God's Word, the sacraments and good works all of which 
are blessings God gives us in His amazing grace, (a) The Holy 
Spirit is an essential gift of grace which God (or Christ) pours 
out on all who believe in Jesus to empower them to live and 
witness. The Spirit manifests Himself in His people through a 
variety of individual gifts to be used for His glory. (b) 
Prayer. Who can overemphasize the importance of being able to 
communicate with God and to receive the blessings He bestows in 
response? (c) The Word of God. By this blessing I mean we have 
by His grace the Bible and that as we read it, study it, pray 
over it and listen to it expounded, God speaks to our hearts, 
blesses us and changes us for good. As the Book of Order says, 
"The Church confesses the Scriptures to be the Word of God 
written, witnessing to God's self-revelation" (B.O. ,W-2,2001) . 



20 



(d) The sacraments are indeed means by which God in His grace 
communicates His presence and help to believers. Baptism is the 
sign and seal of what God has done for us in Christ and of our 
acceptance of His salvation. It marks us as His people. Simply 
put, infant baptism is the showing forth of this sign and the 
stamping of this seal upon little children in anticipation of 
their acceptance at the age of accountability of what has been 
claimed for them by the Church and their parents. In the Lord's 
Supper Christ ministers by His Spirit through the elements to 
assure us that He has really died to cleanse us of sin, is risen 
to be the bread of our lives and is coming again to establish 
His kingdom. We are reminded and refreshed and given a fresh 
start every time we commune with Him in this way. (e) Good 
works are all the needful things God in His mercy intends for us 
to do to advance His Kingdom on earth. His grace enables us to 
do them.

EXAMINATION OF JIM MOORE AS COMMISSIONED LAY PREACHER 



ACTION: 

20. The examination of Jim Moore as a commissioned lay preacher by the 
Examinations Committee of Salem Presbytery was approved. He has 
been instructed and examined in Bible, Reformed Theology, 
Sacraments, Presbyterian Polity, preaching and teaching and 
regarding his personal faith and motives for seeking such a 
commission. (6-14.0516) 

His credo is as follows: 

I believe a statement of faith is a hymn of praise. 

I sing God the Almighty, creator of the dancing universe, 
the skipping mountains, the laughing waters. (The refrain is, 
The world is good, the world is good.) 

It is Jesus Christ who makes all this believable. 
I sing Jesus Christ, God's only son, my only Lord. 
His mother was a Jewish virgin named Mary. 

He lived the life of a man, just as I do, except that 
he did God's will in all things. 

He loved all men and women and children freely, graciously, 
openly . 

Other people found him guilty of being what they were 
not so they condemned Him as a criminal and killed Him. 
He was buried. 
This same Jesus, obedient to God in all things, 
overcame death, 

set people free from the power of sin. 
brought to light life and immortality, 
reconciled the alienated cosmos to itself and to God. 
He rose from the dead. He is exalted above all else. 
He continues his life with God. 

This same Jesus will come to judge all people 
all judgements 
all deeds 

all statements of faith. 
No person can avoid the encounter. No person can count 
on his or her own accomplishments. No person can determine 
the outcome. 

I sing faith in Jesus Christ, faith granted and guaranteed 
by His spirit. 

I sing the melody of the Holy Spirit, life's Lord and 
source, 

coming from the Father and the Son, one with them, 
filling us with the spirit of love and unity; speaking 
for us out of our private depths, to us in corporate 
worship; where the Word is proclaimed and where there 
are sacraments, songs and prayers. 

I sing the harmony of the church, pilgrim people, body of 

Christ. 

hurting where the world hurts 

lonely where the world is lonely 

dying where the world dies. 
My song affirms life and the dignity of all people. 
While seeking it my song praises love. 
While yearning for it my song praises peace. 



22 



Even when my song is drowned by the drums of destruction, 
hate, violence, greed, inhumanity and contempt for the 
hungry and poor and suffering and exploited. 

To them I sing my song of hope, even joy, while getting my 
hands calloused and dirty working with them for their 
dignity and freedom. Though my body is beaten by those 
drummers who fear my song - I sing even to them. 

I sing my finite manhood, my home and family and job, given 
as gifts. 

I sing my confidence in the resurrection after death. 
Alleluia. Amen.

The Committee is most appreciative of the support of Salem Presbytery which made

burdens .

candidacy level. He was examined and received as a candidate in 
covenant with Salem Presbytery. Mr. Crump's application has been 
approved by the St. Paul Session and the Committee On Preparation 
for Ministry after interviews with him. The recommendation above is 
in accord with Salem Presbytery's Committee On Ministry which 
recommended to the Committee On Preparation for Ministry that in

Inquirer in accordance with G-14.303e.

BILLS AND OVERTURES COMMITTEE 



Committee Moderator Curtis Patterson reported. 



ACTION: 



34. Presbytery adopted the following overture for funding Environmental 
Justice and Stewardship. 

AN OVERTURE TO THE 204TH (1992) GENERAL ASSEMBLY 
OF THE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH (U.S.A.) 
FROM SALEM PRESBYTERY 
FOR FUNDING OF ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE AND STEWARDSHIP 

The Salem Presbytery, meeting February 1, 1992, at Highland 
Presbyterian Church, Winston-Salem, North Carolina, overtures the 
204th General Assembly as follows: 



27 



WHEREAS, the 202nd (1990) General Assembly of the 
Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) adopted the report entitled 
"Restoring Creation for Ecology and Justice" with its 
recommendations by an overwhelming majority as a new priority of 
mission to mobilize the church at every level for maximum 
involvement and influence; and, 

WHEREAS, the 203rd (1991) General Assembly reaffirmed 
restoring creation as a"paramount concern", called for support and 
participation in the preparation and follow-up of the United 
Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) in 
Brazil, June 1992, and called for the church's participation in 
prepatory and follow-up processes, with congregations "in a 
process of creating more environmentally sustainable economic and 
living practices"; and, 

WHEREAS, the 1990 General Assembly action called, not only 
for infusion of ecology and justice perspectives and concerns into 
the ongoing functions of the mission units of the General 
Assembly, but also for: a focused strategy of creative 
initiative. .. [with] formation of a General Assembly office or 
program group on Environmental Justice and Stewardship, 
coordinated by the Social Justice and Peacemaking Ministry Unit, 
with enough new staff and budget to cultivate a churchwide network 
designed to respond to global and local environmental crises and 
to develop denominational and ecumenical capability for 
significant eco-justice mission; and, 

WHEREAS, while some steps have been made for "infusion" of 
environmental justice concern to provide resources to program 
areas or local groups, the full implementation of the "creative 
initiative" has been deferred because of a lack of financial 
resources or financial planning to support the priority of 
environmental mission; and, 

WHEREAS, intensifying global problems of climate change and 
ozone depletion, international recognition of problems through 
UNCED, the ever apparent necessity of moral and spiritual 
undergirding for overdue changes of policy and practice, the 
growing demands by congregations and community organizations for 
resources, and other developments since 1990 have heightened the 
need and opportunity for the church's mobilization in behalf of 
the endangered creation; and, 

WHEREAS, the church's commitment to such a mobilization 
requires nothing less than the full implementation of the 
"creative initiative", with staff in Louisville to provide overall 
leadership and coordination for churchwide programming, public 
witness, and ecumenical cooperation; 

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that Salem Presbytery respectfully 
overtures the 204th General Assembly and calls upon it: 

TO COMMEND its agencies, and ENCOURAGE their steadfast 
efforts for infusing eco-justice concerns into ongoing work as a' 
partial implementation of the new mission initiative; and, 

TO DIRECT the General Assembly Council, the Stewardship and 
Communication Unit, and the Social Justice and Peacemaking Unit to 
confer on the most appropriate way to implement the creative 
mission initiative for Environmental Justice and Stewardship, and 
to provide the necessary funds for staffing and implementation of 
that initiative by January 1993, in accordance with specifications 
of the 1990 General Assembly Minutes, Part I, paragraphs 40.871 to 
40.886, with updating of cost estimates; by using funds from a 



28 



combined special offering (e.g. to enlarge the Peacemaking 
Offering with enhanced concept and interpretation to take 
advantage of a widespread interest and support for environmental 
concerns), or some combination of any other sources that may be 



available. 




ACTION: 

35. Presbytery answered the resolution concerning the exclusion of the 
Human Sexuality Report in the negative, with appreciation and 
thanks to the Session of the First Presbyterian Church of Winston- 
Salem for their concern in this matter. 



VOTE TO EXTEND ADJOURNMENT 
At 4:10 p.m. the Presbytery voted to extend adjournment by 20 minutes. 



BILLS AND OVERTURES COMMITTEE (continued) 



ACTION: 

36. Presbytery adopted the resolution of the Session of the Speedwell 
Presbyterian Church concerning the issues of tobacco and the 
Church's investment in the tobacco industry. 

AN OVERTURE TO THE 204TH GENERAL ASSEMBLY 
OF THE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH (U.S.A.) 
FROM SALEM PRESBYTERY 
ON THE ISSUE OF TOBACCO 

The Salem Presbytery, meeting February 1, 1992, at Highland 
Presbyterian Church, Winston-Salem, North Carolina, overtures the 
204th General Assembly as follows: 

WHEREAS, the 199th (1987) General Assembly of the Presbyterian 
Church (U.S.A. ) adopted resolution 48-87 which expresses grave 
concern for users as well as many non-users of tobacco, and 

WHEREAS, the 202nd (1990) General Assembly of the Presbyterian 
Church (U.S.A. ) adopted recommendation 34.124 - 34.137 from the 
General Assembly Council, which states in part: 

"Resolved, That the 202nd General Assembly of the 
Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.): Establishes that it shall be the 
policy of the General Assembly not to invest in securities of 
companies whose principal business is tobacco and are known as 
such. " 

WHEREAS, the General Assembly Divestment List 1991-1992 
specifies the Ligget Group, Philip Morris and RJR Nabisco among 
those companies targeted for divestment, and 

WHEREAS, a sizeable amount of support for many churches in 
Salem Presbytery comes from employees and retirees of the tobacco 
industry, and 



29 



WHEREAS, the contributions of the tobacco industry to the field 
of education, to numerous health and medical facilities, and to the 
economy of North Carolina are indisputable, with supplemental 
funding for ministerial pensions, as well as providing the tax base 
of our economy, and 

WHEREAS, the ethical and economic implications of the use of 
tobacco present an enormously complex issue, not lent to easy 
proclamations, we would like the General Assembly to understand the 
dilemma it has caused in the hearts and minds of its membership in 
the states where tobacco provides the basic income for many 
congregations in our presbytery, state and Synod. We ask ourselves 
the difficult questions and are unable to answer them 
satisfactorily. Do the implications of the 1987 and 1990 overtures 
concerning tobacco imply that the General Assembly does not want the 
contributions of Presbyterians or others who have earned those 
contributions from the tobacco industry? Why has the tobacco 
industry been singled out for divestiture from the multitude of 
investments made by the Presbyterian Church? We are confused by the 
ambiguity of interpretations of the overture and are seeking a sense 
of direction which can be followed by our congregation. 

BE IT THEREFORE RESOLVED, that Salem Presbytery is requesting 
suspension of the 199th and 202nd General Assembly's action on 
tobacco until the above question* can be resolved.

ACTION: 

37. Presbytery adopted and transmitted to General Assembly the following 
resolution of the First Presbyterian Church of Reidsville concerning 
money and gifts generated directly or indirectly from the tobacco 
industry. 

AN OVERTURE TO THE 204TH (1992) GENERAL ASSEMBLY 
OF THE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH (U.S.A.) 
FROM SALEM PRESBYTERY 
CLARIFYING ITS DESIRE TO ACCEPT MONEY 
GENERATED FROM THE TOBACCO INDUSTRY 

The Salem Presbytery, meeting February 1, 1992, at Highland 
Presbyterian Church, Winston-Salem, North Carolina, overtures the 
204th General Assembly as follows: 

WHEREAS, the 199th General Assembly (1987) of the Presbyterian 
Church (U.S.A.) adopted resolution 48-87 AND WHEREAS the 202nd 
General Assembly adopted recommendations 34.124-34.137 which 
positions of the General Assembly express grave concern for the 
users of tobacco and establishes certain policies of the General 
Assembly which are a matter of record; and 

WHEREAS, the Salem Presbytery, through its committee on Bills 
and Overtures has recognized the complexity of the moral and ethical 
dilemmas involved in the tobacco issue; and 

WHEREAS, members of the First Presbyterian of Reidsville, some 
of whom are employees of the American Tobacco Company or farm in 
tobacco, have been and desire to continue to be good stewards of God 
through gifts and tithes and desire to do so as members of the 



30 



Presbyterian Church, but these members now have an actual conflict 
in "their" faith and understanding of God's will due to the 
positions taken by their church; and 

WHEREAS, the tobacco industry and tobacco use issues are so 
complex and involved and the Gospel does not speak or guide 
Christians in the use, sale, distribution, or growing of tobacco 
products or the investment in the stocks of tobacco companies; and 

WHEREAS, the stance as taken by the General Assembly of 1987 
and 1990 are viewed by some devout Presbyterians as an attack on 
their personal morals, ethics and status as Christian individuals; 
and 

WHEREAS, the position of the 199th General Assembly goes far 
beyond the simple request of divestment of stock, but urges a 
substantial increase in taxation of an industry which for many North 
Carolinians and Presbyterians has represented a means of making an 
honest, decent and legal living; and 

WHEREAS, many Presbyterian members believe and can factually 
support the proposition that the tobacco industry and its employees 
have had a very positive effect on hunger, starvation and 
homelessness through its contributions as responsible corporate 
citizens and individual citizens employed by said companies; and 

WHEREAS, the stance of the General Assembly as published and 
circulated may well ostracize those folks who are directly tied to 
tobacco such that they feel compelled to leave "their" church in 
order to avoid the hypocrisy of worshiping God through gifts of 
their money, yet being tainted daily by their work and involvement 
in the tobacco industry; and 

WHEREAS, the Tobacco Study Committee recognized that raising 
questions about the source of one's livelihood may be difficult, the 
Church likewise, has the same difficult task in questioning the 
source of its gifts and donations. 

BE IT THEREFORE RESOLVED, that Salem Presbytery respectfully 
overtures the 204th General Assembly (1992) of the Presbyterian 
Church (U.S.A.) to make clarification and give direction as to 
whether the General Assembly desires to accept money and gifts 
generated directly or indlre ptl y from the tobacco industry.

Elder-Minister Balance at Presbytery Meetings 



As required by the Book of Order 6-11. 0101b. I report that we have 210 ministers 
who are resident members of Salem Presbytery and 187 potential elder 
commissioners from our 156 congregations. 

Therefore, there is an imbalance of 23 more ministers than elders. 

Following the plan adopted in 1989 (April 6 meeting) , the following action will 
redress that imbalance. 



ACTION: 

45. Presbytery asked each of the 21 racial ethnic congregations to send 
one additional elder commissioner, and the remaining elder 
commissioners were invited from the Elkin Church and the Cuilford 
Park Church (the April, 1989, Meeting approved that these additional 
commissioners be determined alphabetically [by town] and Elkin was 
accidentally omitted in 1989) beginning with the April, 1992, 
meeting and continuing through the First Stated Meeting of 1993. 



ACTION: 

46. At the request of the Shady Side Church of Lexington, Presbytery 
approved the extension of its exemption under Book of Order 6- 
14.0201(a) regarding the requirement that a rotary system of 
electing officers with terms, for the year 1992. 



RESOLUTIONS COMMITTEE 
Bob Bryant presented and Presbytery adopted the following resolution. 



ACTION: 

47. Presbytery approved the following resolution and included it as a 
part of the Minutes of this Eleventh Stated Meeting of Salem 
Presbytery. 

RESOLUTION OF THANKS 

Whereas Highland Presbyterian Church extended to Salem 
Presbytery a warm welcome and courteous hospitality in so manyways: 
from coffee, tea, and Moravian coffee cake to a wonderful lunch and 
a comfortable meeting place; and, 

Whereas the Presbytery staff and Presbytery committees laid a 
solid foundation to conduct an organized and efficient meeting; and; 

Whereas this meeting started at the stated time thanks to the 
prompt arrival of Presbytery commissioners; and, 

Whereas we were led in music and worship that nurtured, 
inspired, challenged, and comforted us by Cod's power which worked 
through our worship leaders; and, 

Whereas we received and welcomed into our Presbytery Robert 
Cleveland, Robert 6oforth, Doug Horne, Morton Kurtz, William Metzel, 
and Jim Moore; and, 



37 



Whereas the recognition of the Honorable Retirements of 
James H. Banbury, Edwin C. Brammer, Jr., J. Stimson Hawkins, Frank 
A. Davison, and Donald Mimbs filled us with thanksgiving for their 
years of fruitful ministry and stirred us to fervent prayer for 
these servants for whom retirement will inevitably mean continued 
service as "unpaid volunteers"; and, 

Whereas we were inspired by our ecumenical visitor, the Rev. 
John Mendez, to affirm the denominational bond of fellowship 
existing among our brothers and sisters in Christ throughout the 
Church; and, 

Whereas this meeting provided the opportunity to share 
information, joys, and friendships among felow Presbyterians in 
Salem Presbytery and to receive information from our guest from New 
Harmony Presbytery of South Carolina, the Rev. Frank Colclough, who 
shared information from the General Assembly on church union; and 

Whereas we appreciate the keen leadership and the wonderful 
sense of humor of our outgoing Moderator, the Rev. Ivan Lowery, who 
has moved the business of this day with expediency and grace as he 
has throughout his time of service; 

Therefore, be it resolved that those attending the Thirteenth 
Stated Meeting of Salem Presbytery at Highland Presbyterian Church 
in Winston-Salem give thanksgiving to our Lord and Savior Jesus 
Christ for His presence and guidance today.

Presbytery elected Moderator- in- Nomination Elder Rudolph V. Boone, Sr., as

Budget and Finance Committee 
Salem Presbytery 
Clemmons , North Carolina 

Dear Committee Members: 

During the audit of the financial statements of Salem Presbytery for the year 
ended December 31, 1990, we encountered various problems concerning Camp New Hope 
and Presbyterian Point. These problems resulted in our issuance of an adverse 
opinion on the Plant Fund of Salem Presbytery for the year ended December 31, 
1990. 

BACKGROUND 

As a result of the realignment of Presbytery boundaries effective December 31, 
1988, the newly created Salem Presbytery acquired a 50% interest in Camp New Hope 
and Presbyterian Point (Camps) . The Presbytery of New Hope acquired the remaining 
50% interest. The financial records for these Camps are maintained by the 
treasurer of the Presbytery of New Hope and are audited as part of the Presbytery 
of New Hope. Their auditors provide us with the property, plant and equipment 
information for the Camps when the audited financial statements for the Presbytery 
of New Hope are issued. - The results of operations for the Camps are provided to 
us by the treasurer of the Presbytery of New Hope. 

EFFECTS OF STATEMENT OF FINANCIAL ACCOUNTING STANDARDS NO. 93 

Effective for fiscal years beginning on or after January 1, 1990, generally 
accepted accounting principles require that not-for-profit organizations give 
recognition to depreciation of plant assets. We were aware that Camp New Hope and 
Presbyterian Point recorded no provision for depreciation in past years. In 
September 1991, we were aware that the auditors of the Presbytery of New Hope were 
reviewing the fixed asset records and incorrectly assumed that they were working 
toward compliance with Statement No. 93 for the year ended December 31, 1990. 

In November 1991, the auditors for the Presbytery of New Hope informed us that the 
Camps would not give recognition to depreciation of plant assets for the year 
ended December 31, 1990. The assets of these two camps represent 79% of Salem 
Presbytery's Plant Fund. The effect of not providing depreciation is material to 
the financial statements of the Plant Fund of Salem Presbytery.

December 2, 1991 



The auditors for the Presbytery of New Hope have indicated that it may be two to 
three years before this departure from generally accepted accounting principles is 
corrected. 

SUMMARY 

It is our understanding that the audit of the Presbytery of New Hope for the year 
ending December 31, 1990, did not begin until September 1991. The contracted date 
of completion was around November 20, 1991. We rely on the work of the other 
auditors and therefore cannot issue our audit report until we are provided the 
Camp information. 

We were informed that the Camps' financial records are such an integral part of 
the Presbytery of New Hope that they cannot be audited apart from that Presbytery. 
Unless the Presbytery of New Hope will agree to have its audit earlier and give 
recognition to depreciation for Camp New Hope and Presbyterian Point, Salem 
Presbytery will continue to have its audit issued nine or more months after year 
end with an adverse opinion on its plant fund.

APPENDIX E 



THE STATE OF THE PRESBYTERY 
February 1, 1992 
John M. Hand ley 



Salem has sought to be responsive. We have heard you say: 

- that training of officers should be a priority, and the Educational 
Ministries Committee has begun a training process for officers. 

- there was too much mail from Presbytery's office, and we began the Sampler 
as an attempt to coordinate and reduce the number of mailings. 

- Presbytery meetings were dragging on too long, and we have adjourned before 
4:00 p.m. at the last three meetings. 

- the reproduction and handing out of the Minutes of Presbytery in their 
entirety was a waste, and we have instituted a plan of reproducing the 
Minutes only for those who specifically request them. 

- the review of Sessional Records was a useless and perfunctory activity, and 
we have changed to a regional non-Presbytery meeting format, which has been 
met with applause by the 100 clerks who have attended. 

TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE 

A sixties sign read: If you aren't part of the solution, you are part of the 

problem. 

Seth Schofield, CEO for USAir, extols the efforts of the airline's employees to 
be environmentally responsible. He cites several ways in which environmentally 
they are making a difference. He concludes, yes, one person, or one airline, can 
make a difference. 

Several partners in the radio communications field are seeking nominations in the 
Triad area to recognize persons who make a difference in our communities. 

Montel Williams, a 35 year-old black man who looks a bit like Michael Jordan in 
a coat and tie, spoke to a reporter recently about his personal crusade to reach 
a self-destructing generation of teenagers. Over two million youngsters across 
our country have cheered and chanted his theme, "Mountain, get out of my wayl" 
There are those of us here who have shared and struggled over a mutual concern 
for a generation — especially young black males — who have many mountains to climb. 
Williams says, "White or black, rich or poor, kids today are begging for 
something different than they're getting — attention, affection, and respect." 
A man who is trying to make a difference for good I 

The question I want to raise in examining the State of Salem Presbytery is a 
simple one. Is Salem making a difference? 

A SIGNIFICANT RACIAL ETHNIC PRESENCE 

With its roots in the Bible word Shalom , Salem Presbytery has gone about its 
mission in a number of ways. Seeking to strengthen the connection between us and 
serve our God faithfully, we have worked hard to nurture one of our primary new 
elements — a significant racial ethnic presence . Not that these of our brothers 
and sisters have been quiet and acquiescent — you may have noticed our present 
Moderator is hardly a shrinking flower I 

With strong clergy and lay participation, Salem has recognized and responded by 
electing two of four moderators of Presbytery who are of African American 
descent, along with two Moderators of Presbytery's Council, a Korean and a black 
associate on the Presbytery Program Staff, and numerous committee moderators and 
effective members. 



46 



We have sought to strengthen the witness of Korean First Church in Greensboro and 
churches like Cameron and Allen Temple and Mt. Tabor have been encouraged with 
building or land plans. Each year we have granted extra representation at 
Presbytery Meetings to racial ethnic churches in an attempt to hear those 
important voices in our midst. 

Salem has sought to make a difference by listening and learning from their 
faithfulness — and building a few bridges and celebrating a few breakthroughs and 
singing together some songs of salvation and Shalom — and longing. Connecting a 
little, trusting a little, and being a little more open , knowing we have only 
just begun 1 

LAY LEADER DEVELOPMENT IS A KEY 

And Salem has also sought to become more aware that if it is to make a difference 
it will be because of the strength of its lay officers and members serving 
Christ: in the marketplace, in the society, as citizens of two kingdoms. W. 
Taleefero Thompson-Tally as some of us knew him at Union Theological Seminary, 
Virginia, once said, "Ministers are like manure — spread around they help growth — 
piled up together they make a big stink" 1 

We have been seeking to recover a sense of the ministry of the laity. Last 
Saturday a hundred men and women responded to Ed White's workshop on the vital 
importance of developing lav theologians who share their faith, applying it to 
the daily activities and decisions of life, bringing their churches alive in 
witness to the life-giving vitality of Jesus, our Lordi 

Salem has sought ways to strengthen the spirituality and effective witness of its 
leadership by events like Pathways or retreats centering on spiritual growth. 
We have come to center the life of Salem around its worship — a good place to 
start at the table I We are only touching the edges of the slumbering giant force 
to make a difference in the 39,000 presbyterians who make up Salem Presbytery. 

Leadership training must develop as a major focus of our ministry together — 
members, deacons, elders, ministers. 

Growing in Christ — making a difference not only within our guarded sanctuaries 
but out in the world where the crucified Christ is most likely to be found among 
the broken and distressed. 

Our beginnings have seen some dead ends — but we have sat at each others feet , 
shared some new insights, and, at times, experienced an "A HA1" or two headed out 
with new zeal to make a difference . 

TRUST IS A CENTRAL ISSUE 

Move a mountain — change the world! For Christ's sake! But so far, we have not 
stopped the bleeding. For all our efforts at race relations, the whole black 
community is worse off economically than in the 60 's. For our efforts at 
evangelism, the numbers of Presbyterians (U.S.A.), though declining more slowly, 
is still declining. In both illustrations TRUST is a central issue! From the 
Winston-Salem Journal, Sunday, December 15, 1991, in an article entitled, "Marked 
Money", Christopher Quinn said, "A distrust of institutions and bureaucracy is 
growing in the pews and church members are sending that message to national 
organizations with money — or a lack of money." 

I want to pursue in the State of the Presbytery the issue of trust, which is a 
particularly sensitive subject for Presbyterians since the system of church 
government in the Presbyterian family is built on trust. As that trust has 
eroded, the possibility of becoming more and more congregational in our polity 
has grown significantly. The designation of money for specific causes is one of 
the symbols of the decline of trust in the gathered wisdom on which 
Presbyter ianism is based. 



47 



Money is not the central issue for me, however. Money will come when trust is 
regained — trust that our leaders care, trust that decisions are made in the midst 
of prayer, trust that together we can make a difference. I haven't said much 
about mission in the classical sense, and I believe some of the best of what we 
have done is on parade today through our efforts at being the Church in the 
World. We have taken on some dragons like the crisis over faithful sexual 
expression. We have sought peace — sometimes in the midst of great pain — pain as 
in losing two of our ministers over the issue of faithful sexual expression — pain 
as in the eyes of a parent of a homosexual child — pain as in two sincere 
Christian women who disagree over abortion. We have sought to be a church that 
cares about peace and war and the quality of life for all people, cares about 
respect and dignity for all God's children — rich/poor, black/white, republicans 
and democrats, conservatives and liberals. 

But we have not stopped the bleeding . We are often blinded from seeing the 
hatred in our disagreeing — dismissing both the perceived sin and the sinner. 
Presbyterians, we are the ones with the constitution built on trust and with the 
orderly process for disagreeing in the love of Christ. We are the ones who have 
believed that all of us are smarter, more discerning of the will of God, than any 
one of usl Yet we are more often coming to listen to the wisdom of the body only 
when it agrees with me. 

Yet, we have not stopped the bleeding — the internal bleeding whether the issue 
is human sexuality or tobacco or poverty or war. After three years, I still 
believe that God led us to call ourselves by the name SALEM. Today our 
faithfulness is tested again as sisters and brothers — we seek the one mind of 
Christ. But we have still not mastered the nature of the oneness we seek — we 
still believe we must be the same to be one. The world is bleeding to death for 
lack of oneness. Nothing is there to hold it together 1 And the wound is 
unhealed . 

Salem — seeker of Shalom — clergy/laity, darker skinned/ lighter skinned, small 
church/large let us witness to the truth we know for we ARE one in Christ. Let 
us seek it, seize it, share it — this Oneness — that in Christ all may be made one 
to the glory of Godl 

May we BE different — be who we are in Christ so that together we can make a 
difference. AMEN1

BIBLICAL AND THEOLOGICAL CONSIDERATIONS 

Then Jesus came to them and said, 

"All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 
Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them 
in the name of the Father, and the Son, and of the Holy Spirit; 
teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and 
lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age." 

(Matthew 28:18-20) 



1 This is the Great Commission — clearly a call to action. In these familiar instructions to 

2 his disciples, Jesus uses many verbs, but only two of them are imperatives or commands: 

3 "go" and "make." In using these imperatives, Jesus makes it clear that this is the primary 

4 task. The term "make disciples" stresses the importance of having one first to affirm one's 

5 faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, and then to go on to responsible membership in 

6 Christ's Church, where a deepening experience of God as Creator, Redeemer, and Sustainer 

7 takes place. 

8 Evangelism, Disciple-making, and Church Development are inter-related opportunities. 

9 "... The church is called to be Christ's faithful evangelist 

10 (1) going into the world, making disciples of all nations, 

1 1 baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and 

12 oftheHolySpirit.teachingthemto observe all he has 

13 commanded; 
14 

15 (2) demonstrating by the love of its members for one another 

16 and by the quality of its common life the new reality in Christ; 

17 sharing in worship, fellowship, and nurture, practicing a 

18 deepened life of prayer and service under the guidance of the 

19 Holy Spirit; 
20 

21 (3) participating in God's activity in the world through its life 

22 for others by 

23 (a) healing and reconciling and binding up 

24 wounds, 

25 (b) ministering to the needs of the poor, the 

26 sick, the lonely, and the powerless, 

27 (c) engaging in the struggle to free people from 

28 sin, fear, oppression, hunger, and injustice, 

29 (d) giving itself and its substance to the service 

30 of those who suffer, 

31 (e) sharing with Christ in the establishing of his 

32 just, peaceable, and loving rule in the world." 

33 (G-3.0300Book of Order, PCUSA, 1990-91)

Draft 7-23-91 



The church is called 

a. to a new openness to the presence of God in the church and 
in the world, to more fundamental obedience and to a more 
joyous celebration in worship and work; 

b. to a new openness to its own membership, by affirming itself 
as a community of diversity, becoming in fact as well as in faith 
a community of women and men of all ages, races, and 
conditions, and by providing for inclusiveness as a visible sign 
of the new humanity;" 

(G- 3. 0401 Book of Order, PCUSA, 1990-91 

Throughout its life the church has expressed its understanding of God's call by renewing 
established communities of faith and by establishing newones. As the Gospel was 
proclaimed, churches were developed whenever responsive persons came to know the Lord 
Jesus Christ. Recent General Assemblies have emphasized the need once again for local 
churches, presbyteries, and synods to be about the task of evangelism and the establishment 
of new churches. If our denomination is to fulfill this mission, then major resources must be 
directed toward Evangelism and Church Development. 

Salem Presbytery at its first stated meeting, January 7, 1989, gave the Church Development 
Committee responsibility for: 

"setting goals with congregations for growth, offering training on membership 
growth and assimilation, assisting congregations in redevelopment goals and 
processes, developing a strategy for new church development, projecting the 
needs of new churches, assisting in establishing loans for congregations, and 
recommending sites for purchase by presbytery. " 

(proposed organizational plan for Salem Presbytery) 

Our mandate is: 

to share the Good News of Jesus Christ, 

to serve in the world, and 

to build up the Body of Christ. 

As new congregations are established, the whole church experiences renewal as a gift from 
God, who calls us in Christ to be reconciled to God and to one another, and to be engaged 
in the ministry of reconciliation in a broken and hurting world so that all people might know 
and experience the glory of God's salvation. 



51 



A PHILOSOPHY OF MISSION IN CHURCH DEVELOPMENT 

1 I. AUTHORITY 

2 A. The Book of Order in Chapter XI states: 

3 "The Presbytery is responsible for the mission and government of the church 

4 throughout its geographical district. It therefore has the responsibility and power: 

5 a. To develop strategy for the mission of the church in its area consistent with 

6 G-3.0000; 

7 b. To coordinate the work of its member churches, guiding them and 

8 mobilizing their strength for the most effective witness to the broader 

9 community for which it has responsibility; 

10 c. To initiate mission through a variety of forms in light of the larger strategy 

11 of the synod and the General Assembly; 

12 e. To counsel with a particular church where the various constituencies of the 

13 congregation are not represented on a session; 

14 h. To organize new churches and to receive and unite churches in consultation 

15 with their members; 

16 j. To control the location of new churches and of churches desiring to move; 

17 u. To establish and maintain those ecumenical relationships which will enlarge 

18 the life and mission of the church in its district;" 

19 B. Salem Presbytery encourages the ministry of its congregations to support and assume 

20 responsibility for church development: 

21 1. Through Jesus Christ we have been called to respond to God's redemptive 

22 work in the world and to be a part of God's mission to the world. 

23 2. We engage to make our voice heard in the communities which make up 

24 this Presbytery in a clear and unequivocal preaching of the word, in words and 

25 deeds of loving kindness. 



52 



3. Presbytery, then, must provide support and resources for each local church 
in such a way that the local church will be enabled to fulfill its task as set 
forth by our constitution. The Presbytery should guide its churches and 
mobilize their strength for the most effective witness to the total community 
forwhich .it has responsibility. Its member congregations serve as parts of a 
total mission, each in its place and all working together. 

Salem Presbytery has established the Church Development Committee with their 

responsibility included in the following statement: 

Conduct research and produce demographic data on the geographic area of 
Salem Presbytery for the purpose of planning for: 

1. New Church Development, 

2. Redevelopment of churches, 

3. Realignment of fields, and probable closing of churches. 

The purpose of this paper is to formulate a process for new church 
development and for the redevelopment of some existing churches. 
Whenever a Presbytery establishes new. churches or assists in the 
redevelopment of churches, there is an important role for local churches or 
other groups to co-operate with Presbytery. The Presbytery must have advice 
and counsel on local circumstances, must give encouragement to church 
members to colonize developing churches, and must give assistance with 
financial resources. 
PRINCIPLES FOR DEVELOPMENT AND REDEV ELOPMENT 
Understanding Mission 

A developing or redeveloping church has to be concerned with elements of 
its own life. Such rightful concerns include maintaining an organization, recruiting 
and keeping members, building and/or taking care of physical facilities, developing 
sound financial stewardship, and renting property where necessary. These goals fall 



53 



53 short, however, of constituting the complete or whole objective of a developing or 

54 redeveloping church. Certain other formal goals need to be included in the mission 

55 design of an emerging church. These goals ought always to include: (1) community, 

56 (2) nurture, and (3) service. 

57 (1) "Community" means that a developing church should establish a sense of unity 

58 which is based on the acceptance of the forms of worship, church government, 

59 mutual caring, openness, and sharing responsibilities. 

60 (2) "Nurture" means that an emerging congregation will need to equip each 

61 member to carry out his or her unique expression of the congregation's aims. 

62 This goal can be accomplished through a program of continuing education and 

63 rotation in leadership. 

64 (3) "Service" means that a developing or redeveloping church must also serve 

65 God as individuals and as a corporate body by confronting the world with its 

66 beliefs and by joining others to make social relationships of this world conform 

67 more closely to Christian ideals. 

68 B. Mission Plans 

69 A church which concentrates only on survival. goals is not being true to the call 

70 of our Lord. From the very beginning, mission plans must be an integral part of the 

71 new church's or redeveloping church's reason for being. To arrive at mission plans, 

72 the complete mission should: 

73 1. identify characteristics of the population which support the decision to 

74 begin development or redevelopment; 

75 2. describe the type of congregation which should emerge by identifying 

76 long range expectations; 

77 3. identify immediate objectives; 

78 4. recommend a budget for the first year of operation. 



54 




C. Diversity within a Congregation and Diversity among Congregations 



gO We should expect and promote diversity among churches. No single pre -set 

gl pattern can apply to the development of all new churches or all redeveloping 

g2 churches. Churches will show individual characteristics and innovation should be 

g3 encouraged. Just as churches will differ one from another, so the members within 

84 a congregation should maintain a natural and healthful individuality. Emphasizing 

85 the catholic or universal claims of the church, each new church should be inclusive 

86 in its appeal to all segments of the community, including diverse races, socio - 
g7 economic classes, persons of different ethnic origins, persons in every age-grouping, 

88 and, of course, both genders. Each member should be encouraged to add his or her 

89 unique talents to the task of creating and sustaining a vital church. Hourly laborers, 

90 teachers, writers, artists, musicians, persons skilled in administrative or financial 
191 leadership, dreamers, and many others; all are needed and should be encouraged to 

use their special abilities in service to the church. 

93 Presbytery may encounter occasionally, however, a possible need for a church 

94 which may be developed or redeveloped to meet the needs of members who have 

95 special similarities. An example would be a resort area church, an ethnic group 

96 church, or a church on or near a military base. 

)7 A "House Church" concept can also be a valuable alternative for church 

)8 • development. Focusing upon the intimacy of a small community which concerns itself 

>9 with worship, study, sharing, and service, it avoids some of the complexities of 

00 organization and buildings necessary for larger congregations. Its innovative design, 

01 witness, and flexibility offer an opportunity for believers to exercise their faith in a 

02 unique fashion. 



I 

55 



103 D. Interdenominational Co-operation 

104 Co-operation with other Protestant denominations may not only be possible, 

105 but also advisable in some communities. In some situations, establishment of union 

106 or federal congregations uniting various Protestant traditions would give strength to 

107 their ministries. In every instance of new development, Presbytery should consult 

108 with other Reformed churches before embarking on the task of forming a new 

109 church. 

110 E. Partnership 

111 A sense of partnership must be established between the developing or 

112 redeveloping congregation and Presbytery. Traditionally partnership has been 

113 identified as Presbytery's providing financial support. Presbytery and its churches, 

114 however, have an obligation to share their various resources of persons, materials, 

115 talents, and finances. A partnership must include an exchange of all resources with 

116 a developing or redeveloping church. 

117 F. Dienity and Seif-Worth 

118 In a developing or redeveloping project, a sense of self- worth should be 

119 inspired regardless of size, of membership, or financial resources of the congregation. 

120 In the nucleus group and early organization, a sense of self- worth which expresses 

121 itself in a healthy congregational life and mission should be encouraged. 

122 m. ROLE OF PRESBYTERY IN CHURCH DEVELOPMENT 

123 A. New Church Development 

124 Presbytery, through its assigned agencies, should take initiative in 

125 1. Conducting careful studies of pertinent demographic data; 

126 2. Encouraging existing churches to identify those areas of their 

127 communities which Presbytery should investigate further for new church 

128 development; 



56 



1 £ 3. Consulting with congregations concerning possibilities of church 

ux) development; 

131 4. Seeking and working with a nucleus of interested persons who would 

132 become members of a new congregation; 

133 5. Enlisting the interest and support of nearby Presbyterian churches for 

134 the new congregation, as a means of extending their mission; 

135 6. Providing leadership resources, encouragement, and guidance as the 

136 organizing church develops meaningful nurture, worship, stewardship, 
E137 and service both inside and outside the congregation; 

138 7. Assisting in the evaluation of: 

139 a. needs for property arising from specific functions requiring space 

140 in a projected building or buildings, 

■141 b. probable costs of land, buildings, and facilities, 

142 c. abilities of the congregation to carry the projected costs; 

^ 8. Appointing a steering committee to coordinate the work of Presbytery's 

144 agencies in helping the development of a new church; 

45 9. Determining the qualifications required of an organizing paster and 

146 helping to find such a person; 

■147 10. Assisting in an annual evaluation and formulation of goals and 

148 responsibilities for the work of both church and pastor for as long as 

149 ' the church receives financial aid. 

150 B. Redevelopment of Existing Congregations 

.51 In areas of population and economic change where there is already an existing 

52 Presbyterian Church, redevelopment of that church may be more desirable* than 

53 establishment of an entirely new congregation. Redevelopment of a church means 

54 redirection of a congregation's ministry in the light of changes in the community 

55 being served or among its membership or both. 

It 



57 



156 Such redevelopment might take several forms. A congregation might refocus 

157 its mission and through the assistance of Presbytery and near-by churches begin to 

158 meet specific and unique needs facing it; or, a congregation might relocate in order 

159 to serve a growing or unchurched area; or, two or more congregations might merge 

160 together to strengthen their ability to witness and serve. 

161 Redevelopment includes a planned effort and intent to increase the 

162 congregation's capabilities for effective Christian ministry. Such redevelopments are 

163 best accomplished through partnership between the church and Presbytery. 

164 Presbytery's committee must keep informed of changing situations and 

165 congregations appearing to need redevelopment. It should take initiative in 

166 contacting sessions of such churches to assess with them their needs and 

167 opportunities. Presbytery, through its assigned agencies, should take the initiative in 

168 the following: 

169 1. Conducting careful studies of applicable demographic data; 

170 2. Conferring with churches where redevelopment seems necessary and desirable; 

171 3. Encouraging churches which feel need for redevelopment to come to 

172 Presbytery's committee and to enter into partnership; 

173 4. Enlisting the interest and support of nearby Presbyterian congregations in 

174 extending their mission through assistance in the redevelopment; 

175 5. Seeking out a group of interested individuals from nearby Presbyterian 

176 churches who are willing to commit themselves for a limited time to work with 

177 the members of the redeveloping congregation; 

178 6. Providing, through a steering committee, encouragement and guidance as the 

179 church redevelops its mission both inside and outside the congregation; 

180 7. Assisting in definition of program needs for new ministries; 

181 8. Providing leadership resources for assisting the congregation as it expands its 

182 meaningful nurture, worship, stewardship, and service; 



58 



183 9. Assisting the redevelopment congregation to evaluate: 
^ a. needs for property arising from specific functions that require 

185 space in a projected building or buildings, 

186 b. probable costs of land, buildings, and facilities, 

187 c. ability of the congregation to carry the estimated costs, 

188 d. additional uses for existing property. 

189 IV. FINANCING CHURCH DEVELOPMENT 

190 Ordinarily a goal of every new church or redevelopment church should be the 

191 achievement of financial self-support within a period of five to ten years. This would 

192 mean growth of membership to a level which can carry the costs of a balanced 

193 ministry, but few new congregations can be self-supporting in the first years. Even 

194 a redeveloping church may find it difficult financially to begin the process of 

195 redevelopment unaided. Financial assistance, therefore, must often be provided in 

196 the initial years. 

A new or redeveloping church must encourage and teach strong and aggressive 

l& stewardship. Each new congregation should seek first to be the body of Christ before 

199 it begins to construct a church building. In addition, from the very beginning, all 

200 embryonic churches and all redeveloping churches should participate financially not 

201 only in their own programs, but also in the wide benevolence programs of the whole 

202 church. 

203 In turn, Presbytery will come to the aid of a developing or redeveloping 

204 church by sharing in the initial cost of providing 

205 1 . a salary for a church developer or redeveloper, commensurate with his or her 

206 special qualifications and in keeping with living costs in the community, 
'-07 2. a manse or appropriate housing allowance, 

108 3. office space for the organizing minister and meeting space for the organizing 

109 group to carry on its ministry through the early stages, 



59 



210 4. assistance with architectural service in designing a new building or renovation 
"1 of an older building appropriate to the program, 

212 5. a building site, 

213 6. grants and low-interest loans to be used for the construction of the church's 

214 physical facilities, and assistance in finding ways to raise the necessary funds 

215 to execute the program. 

216 V PASTORAL LEADERSHIP 

217 The person who is chosen to act as evangelist or pastor for an emerging or 

218 redeveloping congregation should meet the following criteria: 

219 1. Presbyterian Church USA orientation, with an appreciation for Reformed 

220 doctrine and polity, broad churchmanship and working knowledge of "The 

221 Book of Order" and "Confession of Faith", and an ability to develop a church 

222 based on a foundation of basic strong Presbyterian beliefs and stewardship. 

223 2. Emotional stability, personable, self- motivated and good physical health. 
' n 4 3. One or more successful parish experiences/pastorates. 

225 4. Commitment to parish ministry. 

226 5. Ability to communicate the goal of the new or redeveloping church to 

227 prospective members and to motivate the new congregation through competent 

228 preaching and teaching skills. 

229 6. Willingness to participate at an early stage in the preparation of: 

230 a. his/her job description, 

231 b. a mission design for the congregation, 

232 c. short range goals for the church, 

233 d. an on-going evaluation procedure. 

234 7. Openness to the possibility of being only an evangelist who leads a 

235 congregation to the point of organization when the congregation may decide 

236 whom it will call as its pastor. 

C 



60 



237 VI . MODELS FOR NEW CHURCH DEVELOPMENT: 
1. A Probe Fellowship - 



239 A group of churched people gathered together by the presbytery in the NCD 

240 ministry area for the purpose of starting a new church. 

241 A way to start would be to obtain the names of presbyterians from 

242 NEIGHBORHOOD presbyterian churches whose address matches the zip 

243 code of the proposed NCD ministry area. 

244 i.e.... a letter may be sent asking presbyterians to come and explore 

245 the possibility of starting a new Presbyterian Church near their homes. 

246 2. A Parent Church Model - 

247 A large presbyterian church in the area would "giveaway" between 50 to 200 

248 members to start a new church. 

249 By vote of the session, the pastor and elders invite anyone who feels so led 

250 to join in the presbytery's decision to develop a new church. Often, the Parent 

Church will hire an ASSOCIATE PASTOR who will become the organizing 
pastor of the new church. In ideal cases the Parent Church also provides 

153 funds for the first year budget. 

54 3. The Scratch Model - 

55 This model occurs when there is no probe or parent fellowship to help start 

56 the new church. 

57 The organizing pastor begins with no prospects and therefore starts from 

58 scratch. The Scratch Model is often used in new, planned communities that 

59 spring up "overnight" in high growth areas. 
50 4. The Tentmaker Model - 

'51 A new church development with a partially paid organizing pastor who does 

•52 "tentmaking" and evangelism. 

:53 




61 



265 5. Other models - 

5 a. Adoption Model: a presbytery invites a group of worshiping Christians 

267 and their pastor to be Presbyterian Christians. 

268 b. Multi- Congregational Model: aging Anglo, inner-city congregation 

269 which seeks to minister to the racial ethnic cultural diversity of their 

270 ministry area. 

271 c. Worshiping Fellowship Model: presbytery recognizes a worshiping 

272 fellowship as a group who may someday move toward organization as 

273 a church, (may nest in a church within the presbytery.) i.e. First Korean 

274 Presbyterian Church. 

275 VH. SELECTION OF THE CHURCH SITE 

276 Before projecting a new church development area, the following criteria 

277 should be carefully considered: 

278 A. Population Density: 

' 9 1. rural/town: an increase in population of at least 3,000 new persons in 

280 the area to be served must be expected within the next 10 years, 

281 2. suburban: an increase of at least 5,000 new residents living in single 

282 family homes within the area to be served must be projected over the 

283 next 10 years, 

284 3. an appropriate combination of 1 & 2 above, 

285 4. city/urban: an increase in population of 5,000 to 10,000 in the area to 

286 be served must be expected in the next 10 years, 

287 5. resort/recreational/seasonal: a seasonal or semi -permanent population 

288 of 2,500 persons must be expected with a like number of permanent 

289 residents apt to be present at any one time. 

C 



62 



B. Travel Time: Distance From Existing PCUSA Churches: 

1. A maximum of 15 minutes driving time from the church site to the farthest 
point in the area to be served, 

2. A minimum of four miles of driving distance to other Presbyterian Churches, 
except in unusual instances, 

(Mountains, lakes, rivers, interstate highways, non- residential land use, and 
large undeveloped areas may influence the location of churches and override 
the conditions in A & B above.) 

C. Focal Points: 

The site should be situated near major schools, shopping centers, or other 
prominent community focal points and on a major street or highway leading from one 
or more residential communities. The building site should provide good visibility to 
the passing traffic. 

D. Site Characteristics: 

1. for congregations with a potential of under 200 members, a two acre 
minimum, 

2. for congregations with a potential of 500 or so members, a three and one half 
acre minimum, 

3. for congregations with a potential of 1,000 or so members, a five acre 
minimum, 

4. if an existing structure is on land which is to become the church site and if it 
has immediate usability but may or may not become a part of the ultimate 
church facilities, an increase in the amount of land over the amounts listed 
may be necessary, 

5. main road frontage of at least 375 feet is desirable to provide safe entrance 
and exit points, with a clear view of passing traffic for approximately 400 feet 
in each direction from exit driveways. 



63 



6. accessibility which will allow for two well spaced entrances and exits if the site 
has frontage on only one road, otherwise secondary access to the site from a 
side or secondary cross-road is desirable. 

Topography: 

Generally level, rising up slightly from the road to provide a commanding 
visibility. Ability to accommodate well and septic systems must be kept in mind if 
such are required. 
Utilities: 

Availability of water, sewerage, gas, electricity, telephones, garbage collection 
as needed. 
Zoning: 

Residential, commercial, public zoning and private deed restrictions have to 
be such as to allow church use. 
Cost: 

Reasonable in comparison to surrounding land values or land and building 
values if a usable structure is on the land.

APPENDIX 6 



REPORT OF TASK FORCE 
ESTABLISHED TO STUDY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY 
POLICY AND PROCEDURES ON SEXUAL MISCONDUCT PAPER 



BACKGROUND 

Origins of General Assembly Paper 

Salem Presbytery assigns Task Force to study paper and make recommendations 
Task Force distributes paper and invites church professionals and Sessions 

to attend one of three District Meetings in Greensboro, Statesville and 

Winston-Salem to discuss the contents of the paper 
Task Force makes its presentation at February 1, 1992, meeting of Salem 

Presbytery 



Issues raised by persons attending the district meetings or by individuals 
who shared concerns in writing include those listed below. This listing is not 
meant to be exhaustive but illustrative. The Task Force felt that the questions, 
suggestions and issues identified underscored the need for additional work before 
presenting for adoption by Salem Presbytery a "Policy and Procedures for Church 
Leaders Accused of Sexual Misconduct." If you have identified issues or concerns 
which are not mentioned in the following list, please write in the space provided 
at the end of this paper, and place it in the box provided on the Stated Clerk's 
table before you leave presbytery today . 



SOME OF THE KEY ISSUES RAISED CONCERNING THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY PAPER 

- There is an inconsistency between Questions posed on Page 15 and those asked 
on page 29. 

- The parameters of the paper are unclear. Does it refer solely to clergy? to 
all church professionals? to all church leaders? What about laity not in 
positions of leadership? 

- The Release on pages 29-30 does not have appropriate boundaries. It extends 
to areas of the person's life which go beyond the complaint being 
investigated . 

- What happens to the Accused' file if the complaint is sustained? 

- What happens to the Accused' file if the complaint is proven false? 

- Any paper or policy on sexual misconduct needs to be in compliance with 
North Carolina State law. 

- The focus of the paper was not clear to all readers. It is a paper about 
sexual misconduct not about human sexuality, but that distinction needs to 
be explicit. 

- Paper either needs to recommend a statute of limitations or to offer a 
stronger rationale for not having one. 

- The definition of sexual harassment is inadequate. 

- Need more details concerning leave time for the Accused. For example, what 
explanation would be given to the congregation for leave? What provision 
would be made for salary? How much time would be appropriate or required 
for leave? 

- the majority of the Response Team should be of the same race and gender as 
that of persons involved in the individual cases. 

- In keeping with Presbyterian Book of Order and governmental structures; the 
Response Team should consist of elders. 

- The paper is sadly lacking in biblical and theological language. Neither is 
the paper a tight legal document. 

- The paper needs to be more specific about time frames, procedures and 
schedules. How promptly can the Victim expect to have his/her complaint 
heard and attended to? 

- How would such a policy interface with the Book of Order and the Committee 
on Ministry? 

- Who will deal with the media and what preparation will they have for doing 
so?

RECOMMENDATIONS : 



1. That the existing TASK FORCE be dismissed with thanks. 

2. That the Moderator of Salem Presbytery appoint a Composition Committee to 
write a "Policy and Procedures for Church Leaders Accused of Sexual 
Misconduct The Composition Committee would be composed of persons 
offering the following resources and wisdom: 

A North Carolina attorney well versed in N.C. law pertaining to sexual 

misconduct 

A theologian 

A pastoral counselor 

A psychologist 

A Book of Order expert 

A Victim (volunteer basis only) 

A presbytery staff person 

It is vital that persons on this committee also offer representation of the 
male, female, clergy, laity, and racial minority perspective. 



Please write down the names of persons in Salem Presbytery whom you would 
recommend serve on the Composition Committee. Identify the area of expertise 
they might offer. Feel free to volunteer yourself if you are qualified and 
willing to serve. 

Name Expertise 



Issues which the General Assembly paper raised for me which were not 
mentioned today that I would like the Composition Committee to consider are: 



Return this sheet to the box on the Stated Clerk's table before you leave 
today. Thank you.

MEMORIALS 



MEMORIAL FOR WILLIAM M. CURRIE 



The Reverend William Currie, known to all of us as Bill, was born in Moore 
County, near Carthage, North Carolina on October 27, 1898. Bill's father 
operated a lumber business, farmed, and was a sheriff. He was a strong man and 
a strong Presbyterian. Bill, three other brothers and a sister, were reared in 
that tradition. 

Bill graduated from Davidson College in 1919. At his seventieth reunion in 1989, 
he was accompanied by his grandson, Harrison, then president of the student body 
and a member of the graduating class of 1989. Following college, sensing a call 
to the gospel ministry, Bill attended Union Seminary in Virginia. He also 
studied at the Biblical Seminary of New York to prepare himself for mission 
service in Korea. But when he finished there were no funds to send him. So, 
following graduating and ordination he was pastor to a group of churches in 
eastern North Carolina, with headquarters in Jacksonville. In 1928 he accepted 
a call to the Presbyterian Church, Belmont, where he served for twenty years, and 
in 1948 to First, Greensboro, where he served for 25 years. Following retirement 
he served an additional 7 years — a total of thirty-two years in pastoral care 
ministry, primarily as a church visitor. 

In 1927, Bill married Carmel Ferguson, a marriage which continued until she died 
in 1960. To them were born a son John and a daughter Sallie. Following Carmel 's 
death, Bill married Margaret in 1962. For twenty-nine years they had a happy, 
beautiful union. Margaret has been a loving, caring, supportive wife to Bill and 
mother to the children. 

Margaret said of Bill that although his father and uncles were businessmen, Bill 
was cut out to be a minister. He had all of the qualities that made him 
effective in that calling: knowledge, understanding, patience, compassion, a 
steadfastness in his commitment to the faith and a keen sense of humor that 
demonstrated itself most frequently as dry wit. 

Bill loved Margaret, his children and grandson Harrison, in whom he took special 
pride. He loved First Presbyterian Church, its pastors, people, and programs. 
He was always interested in what was taking place at the moment and quick to 
state his support. 

First Presbyterian Church honored Bill following his retirement by naming its 
library the Currie Library. As one of the finest libraries in any church it 
honors one of the finest of our Lord's servants, who served faithfully, 
effectively, humbly. When he preached his last sermon at the time of his second 
retirement, his text was his favorite biblical verse: "He has showed you, O man, 
what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice and to love 
kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?" Bill Currie modeled that verse with 
his life. To it is added this additional word: "Well done, good and faithful 
servant; enter into the joy of your Master." 



(Adapted from remarks delivered by Jerold D. Shetler during the memorial service 
for William M. Currie, November 14, 1991.)

MEMORIAL FOR RUFUS FRANCIS JAMERSON , JR 



Rufus Francis Jamerson, Jr., was born November 3, 1917, in Lee County, NC, the 
son of Rufus Francis and Clara Jamerson. His life was a record of long and 
devoted service to his Lord. 

The Rev. Jamerson was a second career minister. His first career was in 
insurance as an employee of North Carolina Mutual. During that time he was an 
elder in Shady Side Presbyterian Church, Lexington, and it was from there he 
received his call to the ministry. He graduated from Johnson C. Smith University 
and Johnson C. Smith Seminary. 

He served as pastor of Blandonia Presbyterian Church, Sanford, NC, Allen Temple 
Presbyterian Church, Cleveland, NC, and Freedom Presbyterian Church, Statesville, 
NC. He retired in 1987. 

The Rev. Jamerson was ordained by Yadkin Presbytery and extremely active in its 
mission; he served as Moderator of the Presbytery, Commissioner to General 
Assembly, Chairman of the Pensions Committee, member of Mission Division, 
Committee on Ministry, Christian Education Committee, Hunger Committee, 
Stewardship Division, and General Council. Because of his ill health, he was 
unable to be active in Salem Presbytery. 

His wife, Mary Belle Jamerson, died November, 1986. The Rev. Jamerson died 
December 10, 1991, and is survived by his daughter Patsy Jamerson and 
granddaughter Mary Jamerson, Lexington, and his son Lonnie Reives, who serves as 
pastor of a Baptist Church in New York City. 

Rev. Jamerson was faithful to his Lord as he served as pastor and presbyter, and 
cared for his family; he was a good friend to all who knew him and always had 
time to help others in their needs. The churches and presbytery he served, his 
family, and the community will miss him. 



(Written by the Rev. Catherine J. Reed.) 



MEMORIAL FOR GEORGE F. NEAL 



George Francis Neal was born March 7, 1933, at Christiana, Delaware, the fourth 
son of William T. Neal and Esther Nichols Neal. His early education was in the 
public schools of Christiana and later Howard High School, Wilmington, Delaware. 
Immediately following high school graduation he served in the U. S. Army for two 
years. He attended Lincoln University, graduating in 1967. 

He began his professional career as a teacher in the Philadelphia public schools 
and later worked for DuPont and General Motors. It was during this period he 
received a call to the ministry. While working for General Motors in Montreal, 
he met and married his wife, Eunice. They had two sons, Andrew and Phillip. In 
September, 1962, they joined Community Presbyterian Church, New Castle, Delaware. 

George attended Princeton Theological Seminary, graduating in 1967. His first 
pastorate was at Presbyterian Church of Reconciliation in Chattanooga, Tennessee; 
later he was pastor at Memorial Presbyterian Church, Roosevelt, NY. In 1973 he 
came to Covenant Presbyterian Church, Durham, NC, where he pastored 15 years. 
He was active in numerous committee and church-related endeavors; these include 
Moderator of Yadkin Presbytery, Durham Presbyterian Council, and spearheaded 
Durham congregations in actions which involved meals on wheels and the 
establishment of an AA group that continues to meet at Covenant Church. 



68 



He was very active in both Yadkin Presbytery and Synod of the Piedmont. In 
addition to the above-mentioned responsibilities, he also was twice Commissioner 
to General Assembly, a member of Committee on Ministry, Christian Education 
Committee, Stewartship Committee, and Missions Division for the Presbytery; in 
addition to serving on several synod committees, he participated in a mission 
trip to Nicaragua. Despite declining health, he served on the Higher Education 
Committee of Salem Presbytery. 

In 1988 he lost his wife to cancer and subsequently became interim pastor of 
Grace Presbyterian Church, Winston-Salem, NC. He suffered a stroke and early in 
1991 he returned home to Christiana. His death in July, 1991, was sudden and 
unexpected . 

Reflections of George bring to mind pleasant memories of a life devoted to God, 
his work in the mission of the church, his wife and sons, and his service to 
others. Our thoughts of him are illuminated by his journey of faith. His 
indefatigable spirit, uncomplaining manner, genuine love and concern, and his 
remarkable memory radiate our recollections of the George we knew and loved. 



(Written by the Rev. Catherine J. Reed.) 



MEMORIAL FOR CHARLES H. RECKARD 



Charles "Jack" Reckard was born December 13, 1921, in Huntington, West Virginia, 
the son of Edgar Reckard and Lois Musselwhite Reckard. He was the second of 
three boys. His mother, age ninety-eight, survives as does his older brother 
James of St. Marys, West Virginia. 

Jack attended public schools in Huntington and when he had graduated in 1941 he 
had excelled both as a student and as an athlete. He attended Georgia Tech 
University as a co-op student with International Nickel. In addition to doing 
well in his studies, he played freshman and varsity basketball. In 1943, he 
entered the Army Air Corps, receiving part of his training at Yale University. 
In 1946 he left the Corps with the rank of captain. Returning to Yale, he was 
offered a full scholarship, but he returned to Georgia Tech, graduating as an 
engineer in the class of 1948. 

Peeling the call of God to ministry, Jack entered Louisville Seminary. While in 
seminary he married Maxine Orndorff of Huntington, whom he had known since the 
sixth grade. Jack and Mac, as he called her, had their first child, Mike, during 
those seminary years. When he graduated in 1951, the three of them moved to 
Jack's first pastorate in Huntsville, Tennessee. It was there he established a 
close relationship with Howard Baker, who was later to become a senator and 
advisor to presidents. From Huntsville the family moved to Hillsborough, North 
Carolina, where he served that historic old church for seven years. During this 
pastorate, daughter Becky was born. Jack continued his studies at Duke and 
Louisville, receiving a Th.M. from that seminary in 1960. 

In September of that year Jack became an associate pastor of the Harvey Browne 
Memorial Presbyterian Church in Louisville. Here his relationship with Joe 
Mullin began, and except for a brief term, continued until he retired ' some 
twenty-five years later. Jack was to Joe what Barnabas was to Paul. This team 
produced much fruit for the whole church. While in Louisville, son Eddie was 
born. 

After serving Harvey Browne Church for eight years, Jack accepted a call as 
pastor of the Woodland Presbyterian Church, New Orleans. In June, 1971, he 
became associate pastor of First Presbyterian Church, Greensboro, where he served 
until his retirement in December, 1987. In 1977 he earned a D.Min. degree from 
Austin Seminary. In the former Orange Presbytery Jack served on or as 
chairperson of committees concerned with candidates, evangelism, stewardship, and 
ministry. He was presbytery moderator. 



69 



His accomplishments are too numerous to list. However, two of his significant 
contributions are his establishing the Good Samaritan Fund of First Presbyterian 
Church and was a founder and board member of the Presbyterian Counseling Center 
of Greensboro. 

People who knew Jack well describe him as loving, compassionate, caring. . .able 
to identify, trusting, af f irming ... methodical , exacting 
perfecting. . .understanding, forgiving, gave benefit of a doubt. A longtime 
ministerial colleague said of Jack that when he was up to something good he 
always had a twinkle in his eye. Even when he was dying of cancer, Jack found 
hope in the Apostle Paul's affirmation: "We know that all things work together 
for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose." 



(Adapted from remarks delivered by Jerold D. Shetler during the memorial service 
for C. H. (Jack) Reckard, August, 1991.) 



MEMORIAL FOR WILLIAM W. SLOAN 



William W. Sloan was born October 30, 1901, in Prospect PA, the son of Wilson and 
Margaret Sloan. His father, Wilson Sloan was a Presbyterian minister. At age 
7 Bill had polio and, although he never allowed it to control his life, he was 
always of victim of its effect. He grew up in his native state of Pennsylvania. 
During World War I he read gas meters, often walking as much as 20 miles per day. 
he paid his own way through the College of Wooster. He started out selling 
Wearever aluminum pots and pans and soon was training others to sell; he was 
promoted to sales supervisor before he graduated from college. 

After college he went to Alexandria, Egypt where he taught English, Bible, and 
business law in the American Mission College. After being accepted for study at 
the Harvard University School of Business, he changed his mind and went to 
McCormick Theological Seminary. While attending McCormick he also studied 
Christian Education at Northwestern University and was named Director of 
Christian Education at First Congregational Church, Appleton, Wisconsin, the 
January of his senior year. Later he attended Northwestern University and 
received the PhD degree in Religious Education; it was while there that he met 
Bessie Pickatt, whom he married February, 1934, in Pullman, Washington. 

Bill Sloan served as pastor of a Presbyterian church in Baker, Oregon, and 
churches in Grand Coulee Dam, Washington, and Hudson, SD. While teaching at 
Buena Vista College, he served churches in the Methodist, Presbyterian and 
Congregational denominations and was proud of the fact he had held ministerial 
standing in all three of these denominations. 

After teaching at Western, Huron, Buena Vista and Berry Colleges, Dr. and Mrs. 
Sloan came to Elon College in 1947. They were citizens of the world, traveling 
around the world four times, escorted tours to the Holy Lands, were in Russia 
three times, and visited a total of 108 countries. After their retirement from 
Elon College, they went to Zambia and taught in the UCC Ministerial Training 
College and in the African Literature Center. 

Dr. Sloan was a scholar, a preacher, a lecturer, an author, a world traveler, a 
successful teacher, and a personal friend to many people. He was a man for all 
seasons - a caring, committed Christian who felt it was his primary vocation to 
study and to teach and to personify the Word of God. 

Dr. William W. Sloan died March, 1991. 



(This was taken from the tribute given by Earl Danieley at the Memorial Service 
for Dr. Sloan, March 14, 1991.)

The Session of Elkin Presbyterian Church is seeking to meet an 
emergency need on an international level. Our goal is to send 
a ton of food relief directly to Pyatisgorsk, a Russian town in 
dire economic need. This food will be transported with the 
assistance of the U. S. military, the KGB, the Russian Orthodox 
Church, and the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). Though actual 
transportation costs are covered, funds are needed to purchase 
and pack these food supplies. Because of the timeliness of this 
opportunity, our Session requests the Hunger Committee to 
approve $1,000 for this project. Shipping date is March 29, 1992. 
These funds would be appropriated from the international account. 
Thank you for your careful and prayerful consideraton.

III. ACTIONS OF PRESBYTERY 



ACTION: 

1. Salem Presbytery empowered its Council as the keeper of its Official 
Events Calendar. Such empowerment includes the authority to approve 
events, workshops, retreats, training sessions, etc., promoted in 
9 the name of Salem Presbytery or any of its committee structures 
BEFORE any binding arrangements for or public announcements of such 
events are made . Council shall review plans submitted by its 
structures for timing and location in relation to other events 
already on the calendar, as well as, for their thoroughness , 
clarity, and promise for success before placing the event on the 
calendar . 



The Budget and Finance Committee wants the policy of restoring excess funds to 
Synod and General Assembly expanded to be ongoing, not just 1992. The auditors 
charged with examining the financial records of Salem Presbytery have recommended 



78 



that the previous action of Salem Presbytery on July 13, 1991, as it relates to 
recommendation #3 of the Budget and Finance Committee be changed. 



ACTION: 

2. All year-end unused budgeted benevolences available for Presbytery's 
use shall be spent in the following manner: First, commitments to 
General Assembly and Synod shall be fulfilled; for the year 1992, 
this includes restoring the 1/2 percent reduction to General 
Assembly and Synod. 



The grassroots group which successfully completed the renovation and updating of 
the mission hospital at Hwandi, Zambia, is proposing the addition of an 
educational center adjacent to the hospital. It would provide Nutrition 
Education and Pre-School Development and a new facility to house these programs. 

Mwandi I has touched the lives of thousands. There is a new sense of excitement 
about what God can do when Christians join together to seek after God's concern 
for the wholeness of people. The Salem Council applauds the generosity and self- 
sacrifice of the 22 churches who made Mwandi I a reality. The Council is moved 
by the challenge of Mwandi II. We believe that the request for endorsement of 
the Mwandi II Project by Salem Presbytery demonstrates the Presbyterian 
connect ional system at its best. 

The Council believes, however, there are valid concerns raised about this process 
that need to be addressed before Salem Presbytery commends Mwandi II to its 
churches. In consultation with the Global Mission Unit of the General Assembly 
and Salem's Hunger and International Mission Committees, Council believes that 
any such international project should first be recommended by Global Mission. 
Mwandi I was a project approved both by that General Assembly Unit and by the 
Presbyterian related Medical Benevolence Foundation. Mwandi II to date has not 
yet been approved by either. 

Even though the Presbytery was not officially invovled in the first Mwandi 
project, we believe participation by our churches was an outstanding example of 
both mission commitment and over- and- above stewardship. The smashing success of 
that project is having an impact on our denomination's mission strategy 1 

Some leaders of the Mwandi I venture have proposed Mwandi II. In good faith and 
order, they approached Salem Presbytery for endorsement before approaching our 
churches to participate. Prior to Salem's endorsement, attention should be given 
to insure that resources of time, talent and money can be focused where needs are 
greatest and long-term success of the venture is likely. Projects should be 
offered by Global Mission to be examined and adopted by local congregations or 
Presbytery cooperative effort to give God praise and to help God's people grow 
in the Spirit of Christ. 

The Council rejoices in the impact of Mwandi I on the critical needs of Zambia, 
on the lives of hundreds of Presbyterians in this and other presbyteries, and on 
the future of how the denomination does mission. We are particularly pleased by 
the responsible request to Salem for endorsement of the Mwandi II proposal. With 
great excitement about another such spirit-filled experience of God's presence 
and guidance, we believe that one valid, exciting way the Presbyterian witness 
is at its best is when it includes the combination of hearts and hands. 

We also strongly believe that part of the genius of Presbyterian order means that 
in order to use our limited Presbyterian resources in the wisest way possible, 

our Global Mission Unit of the General Assembly should identify where the most 
critical needs are in various parts of the world which can be addressed by such 
grassroots "hands on" efforts. 



79 



ACTION: 



3. Salem Presbytery commended the Mwandi II Project to the Global 
Mission Unit for its approval or its recommendation of an 
alternative project; and 

Salem Presbytery will request the General Assembly Global Mission 
Unit to develop a strategy to directly involve local congregations 
in on-site mission work. 



ACTION: 

4. Salem Presbytery invited the Moderator of the Presbyterian Women to

RECEPTION OF O. LEIGHTON CULLER 



ACTION:

Leighton Culler in accordance with Book of Order 6—11.0402. 

a. The Reverend Leighton Culler was received from Charlotte 
Presbytery to serve as the interim pastor of the Westminster 
Presbyterian Church in Greensboro. 

b. His credo which follows was approved: 

I was born into a Presbyterian family and my parents 
presented me for the Sacrament of Baptism as an infant. My 
father is a retired minister and a member of Salem Presbytery. 
My oldest son, Mike, is an elder in the Highland Church. 

I see my life as a journey in which I have experienced 
both Providence and Christian Grace. My experiences in my 
family and in church were important to the directions my life 
would take later. 



82 



After college I taught mathematics and physics in Sr. 
high school for four years. During that time I enjoyed close 
relationships with my students. They came to my classroom 
before and after school to talk. I learned of their stresses in 
family life, their search for direction and meaning in their 
lives. At the same time my wife and I were deeply involved in 
Highland Presbyterian Church, Winston-Salem, NC, where I was 
influenced by the pastor, the Rev. Eugene Kirkman. In worship, 
week after week, I felt a deep hunger and yearning to study the 
Scriptures. I wanted to know the richness and depth of the 
Bible's message and find answers for my personal faith and 
meaning for my life. I felt I was being spoken to personally in 
each worship service but I didn't know what I needed to do about 
it. 

Several months of struggling followed. What would I do 
about my plans for studying and teaching mathematics and 
science? Gradually I yielded to what I believed to be God's 
plan for my life — ministry 1 I entered Union Theological 
Seminary in Virginia, with the expectation that I would prepare 
to minister to youth. In my first congregation after 
graduation, I discovered that adults of all ages had the same 
needs I had seen in those high school students — the same needs 
and hungers that were so familiar to me! I did a lot of youth 
ministry in the early years along with all other pastoral 
duties. Having training and experience as a teacher, I have 
continued to emphasize educational ministry as a part of my 
pastoral work. 

Those basic yearnings for biblical truth with which I 
began has grown through the years. I have participated in 
continuing education events each year and completed a Doctor of 
Ministry degree at Columbia Seminary. I also continue to be 
drawn to people in their special times of need and struggle. 

My journey of faith has been one of opening of eyes to 
God's care (Providence) and acceptance at every turn (Grace). 
For a life of growing trust in Jesus Christ as my Lord and 
Savior, I am grateful. For Word and Sacraments, the church, and 
all aspects of grace, I am grateful. This gratitude causes me 
to respond, with all Christians, in love of God and neighbor. 

c. Mr. Culler was instructed to sign the obligations required of a 
minister to be enrolled in presbytery. 



RECEPTION OF K. MOSER MISENHEIMER 



ACTION: 

10. Presbytery approved the committee and floor examination of K. Moser 
Misenheimer in accordance with Book of Order G-11.0402. 

a. The Reverend K. Moser Misenheimer was received from East 
Tennessee Presbytery as a retired pastor. Reverend Misenheimer 
lives in Greensboro and desires to have opportunities for 
ministry within our presbytery. 

b. His credo which follows, was approved. 

I believe in God the Father Almighty, Creator and 
Sustainer of the universe. He is all-knowing, all-powerful and 
everywhere present. He is most loving, long-suffering and 



83 



forgiving. He is our Sovereign, King and Ruler, and has an 
eternal plan for all humankind, yet has given His people 
freedom. 

I believe in God the Son, Jesus Christ, our Savior and 
Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, and was divine. He 
was born of the Virgin Mary, making Him also human. He suffered 
and died on the cross, bearing the sins of all people. The 
third day He rose again from the dead. His resurrection 
provides meaning and hope for my faith and existence. I believe 
in His teachings and miracles. By His grace and through our 
faith in Him we receive salvation, healing, wholeness and 
eternal life. 

I believe in God the Holy Spirit who is the Lord and 
Giver of life. He gives new life to people by His grace, 
convicts them of sin, moves them to repentance, persuades and 
enables them to embrace Jesus Christ by faith. He unites all 
believers to Christ and dwells in them as their Comforter and 
Sanctif ier . 

I believe the mission of the church is to make disciples 
of all people, to baptize them in the faith, and to instruct 
them in the teachings of the Scriptures. 

I believe Christ gave the Church two sacraments: 1. 
Baptism, which symbolizes the washing away of believers' sins 
and their being joined into God's family. 2. The Lord's 
Supper, where the symbols of bread and wine remind us of the 
body of Christ broken and His blood shed for us on the Cross. 
Through the Sacraments God is present with us and strengthens us 
to be about His work in the world. 

I believe the Bible is inspired of God, is His self- 
revelation and is to be the rule of faith and life. The written 
word reveals a God who is continually at work to restore the 
broken relationship between sinful humans and righteous God. 

I believe in the Christian life believers are to offer 
a personal witness to their faith in Jesus Christ. They also 
are to offer a united public witness to society and to the 
world. 

I believe that God will send His only Son, in His glory, 
a second time to judge all people. I believe the Church 
Universal, made up of all those in all times and places who have 
responded in faith to God's call in Jesus Christ, will, in the 
end, be triumphant and victorious over the forces of evil in the 
world. I believe God will one day establish His kingdom in all 
its fullness. The Kingdom of God will have no end. 

c. Mr. Misenheimer was instructed to sign the obligations required 
of a minister to be enrolled in presbytery. 



RECEPTION OF MICHAEL JAMES POULOS 



ACTION: 

11. Presbytery proceeded with the examination of candidated Michael 
James Poulos. He has passed the General Assembly Standard Exams, 
and has been examined by the Examinations Committee of Presbytery. 
Presbytery approved the committee and floor examination and sermon 
of Michael James Poulos. 



84 



a. Michael James Poulos was received pending his graduation from 
seminary and will be ordained by Salem Presbytery so that he may 
accept the call to serve as the Associate Pastor for Youth and 
Their Families at First Presbyterian in Greensboro. Michael is 
currently a candidate for ministry in the Greater Atlanta 
Presbytery and completing his studies at Columbia Seminary. The 
effective date of this call is June 1, 1992. 

b. His credo which follows, was approved. 

I affirm my faith in the triune God (Father, Son, and 
Holy Spirit), the One God to whom the Scriptures bear unique and 
authoritative witness, the One God decisively revealed to us in 
the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth. My 
faith in this God comes as a response to God's activity in the 
world. This activity is especially seen in the works of 
creation, the history in the nation Israel, the culmination of 
this history of Jesus Messiah, and the continuing presence of 
Christ's Body in the world today, the Church. Through the power 
of the Holy Spirit, working in the hearts of those who hear the 
Word of God proclaimed, we come to trust in the purposes of the 
One who creates, redeems, and sustains us. These purposes 
center on the reconciliation of all things in Jesus Christ. 

God's activity of reconciliation is truly good news, for 
we are in need of such love. Though we are created in God's 
image, and are designed to be in right relationship to our 
Creator and the rest of creation, we tend to place other things 
before the worship of God. This idolatry separates us from God, 
from one another, and from the rest of creation. The 
consequences of sin are death, and left to our devices, we would 
be without hope. But in Christ God has acted decisively for 
creation, taking on the penalty of our sins in order that we 
might have new life. In baptism we are buried with Christ and 
raised to this new life, and the Spirit seals this promise on 
our hearts. 

The Christian life is thus seen as a response to God's 
love for us, and in response to this gracious love, we are 
called to live lives of gratitude, loving and serving others in 
word and deed. In our words we witness to the reconciliation 
taken place already in Christ; in our lives we are to work to 
make this reconciliation more of a reality in our broken, sinful 
world. We are to depend on God daily through prayer and 
meditation on Scripture, trusting in God to transform us in our 
personal lives of discipleship. The people of God are also 
continually renewed and empowered at the Lord's Table, a time 
where we are bound to Christ and one another. The Church is 
called to be God's agent of reconciliation in the world, working 
to transform the structures of life which breed suffering and 
injustices. As agents of reconciliation in the world, we must 
not lose sight of who we are - children of a God who is not 
limited by our efforts and strivings to bring in the Kingdom. 

c. Presbytery approved the establishment of an Associate Pastor

89 



NEW CHURCH DEVELOPMENT: 



First Korean, Greensboro: 

The NC Department of Transportation has announced the corridor for Painter 
Boulevard in Greensboro and it will not affect the proposed site previously 
approved for purchase. Approval for installation of a septic tank has been 
requested and completion of the land purchase is expected to take place as 
soon as all conditions have been approved. 

Northwest Guilford County, Oak Ridge Area: 

The Steering Committee, appointed at the October, 1991 Presbytery meeting, 
has chosen a potential site for the proposed new church. The site, 
approximately 6.5 acres, is located on NC Highway 150, approximately one (1) 
mile East of NC Highway 68 and the Oak Ridge Military Academy, (see maps). 
Street frontage is approximately 385 feet. The front portion of the site, 
near the street, is a low knoll, above street level. There are three 
permanent buildings and one mobile home located on the site. The largest 
building, 34 feet by 70 feet, 2,380 square feet, is a clear span metal frame 
building with insulated metal walls and roof, concrete floor, overhead gas 
heating unit, air conditioning unit with ducts, one commode that is not 
connected to an approved septic system, two partitioned rooms, and three 
overhead doors. The Steering Committee proposes renovation of this 
structure for use as a fellowship hall and worship area. A second 
structure, 16 feet by 90 feet, 1,440 square feet, has vinyl siding and is 
divided into three areas - a finished office area, 16' x 24'; a storage 
area, 16' x 50' with unpainted sheetrock walls and ceiling; and a tack room, 
16' x 16'. An open shed with metal roof extends along the back side of this 
second building. A double carport is located next to the mobile home. A 
well provides water to the mobile home and the proposed fellowship hall. 
The septic tank serving the mobile home is considered too small to serve a 
new church structure. 

A contract to purchase the approximately 6.5 acres and the improvements 
thereon has been obtained, at a price of $205,000.00, subject to the 
following conditions, 

1. Approval by Guilford County Health Dept. for septic tank for 
proposed church buildings. 

2. Approval by Salem Presbytery at its April 28, 1992 meeting. 

The Steering Committee's recommendation to purchase the approximately 6.5 
acres is endorsed by the Church Development Committee and Presbytery 
Council. 



ACTION: 

28. Salem Presbytery approved the purchase of 2620 Oak Ridge Road, 
Guilford County, Greensboro, NC; a tract of approximately 6.5 acres 
and the improvements thereon, at a price of $205,000.00. 

(The purchase money would come from designated Church Development 
funds, $100,00.00 of which was donated by First Presbyterian Church 
of Greensboro, NC. ) 



PERSONNEL COMMITTEE 
Rosa Yourse, Moderator 

Associate Search 

Your Committee is busy gearing up for the search for an Associate precipitated 
by Carter Shelley's resignation. We are in the process of advertising for the 
position across the church. The deadline for applications is May 20, 1992. It 
is our hope to present a nominee to the next meeting of Salem Presbytery on July 
18, 1992.

Triennial Review of Willie Garvin 



The triennial evaluation of Elder Willie D. Garvin, Presbytery Associate for 
Business Affairs/Treasurer, Salem Presbytery, was conducted by the Personnel 
Committee on April 1, 1992. 

To gather information for the assessment, the Committee sent evaluation forms in 
the Sampler to Pastors, Educators, and Sessions within the Presbytery to get a 
broad sampling of responses. Additional forms were sent to individuals suggested 
by Ms. Garvin. 

The review was based on information received from 31 respondents who have known 
Ms. Garvin for a period ranging from 2 to 25 years under a variety of 
circumstances (i.e. friend, fellow presbytery worker, committee moderator, church 
treasurers, pastors, educators). Additional insights were derived from members 
of the Personnel Committee, other Presbytery Staff, and Ms. Garvin's self 
appraisal . 



Responses were varied and candid: 



- In the category of Self -under standing - of those who responded, 96% rated 
her either Outstanding or Good . 

- In the category of Motivation - of those who responded, 90% rated her either 
Outstanding or Good . 

- In the category of Emotional Strength - of those who responded, 87% rated 
her either Outstanding or Good . 

- In the category of Adaptability in Diverse Racial/Cultural Situations - of 
those who responded, 95% rated her either Outstanding or Good . 

- In the category of Interpersonal Relationships - of those who responded 85% 
rated her either Outstanding or Good . 

- In the category of Leadership - of those who responded, 70% rated her 
Outstanding or Good (another 20% rated her satisfactory). 

- In the category of Skill - of those who responded, 95% rated her either 
Outstanding or Good . 

A sampling of the overwhelmingly positive majority of the comments expressed 
included: 

- enjoy her great spirit and greatly appreciate her ability 

- knowledgeable in her position 

- i am constantly impressed with Willie's combination of warmth and 
professionalism 

- seems to thrive on a challenge 

- very personable and unruffled I 

-. welcomes constructive criticism as an avenue of growth 

- very adaptable 



- listens well 

- has ability to be succinct and "on target" 

- leads by being a competent role model 



91 



- very prompt and keeps us on track financially 

- we are truly blessed to have her on staff I 

Her quiet competence and personal warmth, ability to adapt, and willingness to 
share both her knowledge and Christian commitment seem to summarize the 
respondents' comments. 

There were those who felt that felt Ms. Garvin could take more initiative as a 
leader and be more direct in articulating Salem's mission. One responder 
suggested that some improvement in communication skills and being more assertive 
in sharing her own stories and giving more concrete examples would be helpful. 

The Personnel Committee believes Salem is indeed fortunate to have Willie Garvin 
on our staff. Our finances and our faith are in competent, caring hands 1 



ACTIONS : 

29. Ms. Willie Garvin was elected to an additional three-year term as 
Presbytery Associate for Business Affairs/Treasurer commencing May 
15, 1992, and continuing through May 14, 1995. 

30. Salem Presbytery commended Ms. Garvin for her work over the past 
three years, and a prayer of thanksgiving and intercession was 
offered for her at an appropriate time during the meeting. 



Annual Review of the Reverend Catherine Reed 

The annual performance review of the Reverend Katy Reed, Hunger Action Enabler, 
was conducted by the Personnel Committee on April 1, 1992. 

The review was based on information obtained from sixteen selected individuals 
in Salem Presbytery with specific knowledge of the Reverend Reed's work, insights 
of members of the Personnel Committee, staff and from Reverend Reed's self- 
evaluation. 

A sample of the thoroughly positive responses provided were candid and varied: 

- she "carries the banner" for her program high and proud 

- good "bridge" between old and new 

- Katy's faith is central to everything she does 

- a positive force 

- promotes increased awareness of hunger issues/needs 

- provides honest and accurate information 

- very positive: loving, caring, dedicated facilitator of forward movement 

- good for Salem 1 

Some respondents noted that management of time and ability to set firm priorities 
for her work would help her better organize the "global" scope of her work. 
Concern was expressed for her self-care suggesting that she not take on so many 
projects. Punctuality and timeliness were noted as areas of concern. 

The Personnel Committee is thankful for the assessments offered and deeply 
appreciative of the spirit in which both commendations and constructive 
criticisms were offered. We believe that Ms. Reed embodies in a unique way the 



92 



concern Salem has for the hungry of this world. Her deep faith and Christian 
commitment is seen in everything she does! We greatly appreciate her realistic 
self-appraisal which anticipated the needs for improvement stated above. 

Katy Reed "is our heart" as one responder stated. Her unique style gives heart 
both to the hungry and to our resolve that one tomorrow soon hunger will be a 
problem solved 1 

We believe Salem is blessed to have Katy Reed as our Hunger Action Enabler. 



ACTION: 



31. The Reverend Catherine ("Katy") Reed was commended for her job 
performance for the past year, and a prayer of thanksgiving and 
intercession was offered for her at an appropriate time during the 
meeting.

REPORT OF THE STATED CLERK 

1. Edward Webb Church 

The Edward Webb Church, at a congregational meeting January 26, 1992, 
requested a waiver from the requirements of 6-14. 0201a. requiring limited 
terms of service for deacons and elders. The request is based on G- 
14.0202a. (3) which allows the Presbytery by a majority vote to allow such an 
exemption for up to three years. 

The Edward Webb Church lists sixteen members including several aged and/or 
in poor health. The Reverend Katy Reed is Stated Supply part-time. This 
seems to qualify the exemption as the Book of Order states, "...it is 
impossible because of limited membership to provide for the rotation of 
terms ..." 



ACTION: 

42. The Edward Webb Church was granted a waiver of the requirements of 
Book of Order, G-14.0201.a. , for three years ending April 28, 1995. 



2. Disciplinary Committee 

In the Rules of Discipline of the Book of Order, D-7.0200 2.b, it states: 
"An inquiry shall be made by a special disciplinary committee designated by 
the governing body for that purpose, as provided in D-7.0800, to determine 
whether charges should be filed." When an accusation is brought to the 
Stated Clerk between meetings of Presbytery more than three months may 
elapse before such an investigation committee can be appointed. 

When a request for a special disciplinary committee has come at a meeting of 
Salem Presbytery, our custom has been to empower the Moderator of Presbytery 
to appoint the needed group and report back to the next meeting the names of 
its members. A special disciplinary committee has the limited power to 
investigate the allegation < s) and determine whether charge (s) should be 
filed. 

The following action is an attempt to facilitate what is usually a long, 
extended process, by allowing the Moderator, at the Stated Clerk's request, 
to appoint such a committee when allegations have been received. The Clerk 
has no authority to judge the validity of such allegations. 



ACTION: 

43. Salem Presbytery authorized its Moderator, at the request of its 
Stated Clerk, to appoint a special disciplinary committee (Rules of 
Discipline, Chapter 7) when an allegations ) has been received, and 
to report the names of those appointed to the next meeting of 
Presbytery. 



96 



STANDING COMMITTEES 



RESOLUTIONS COMMITTEE 



Rick Wurst and Ida McCaskill presented and Presbytery adopted the following 
resolution. 



44. Presbytery approved the following resolution and included it as a 
part of the Minutes of this Fourteenth Stated Meeting of Salem 
Presbytery. 



Whereas, on April 28, 1992, we traveled to Hawfields 
Presbyterian Church and were welcomed by a beautiful day, a hot-air 
balloon, and smiling greeters in "Celebrate" T-shirts; and, 

Whereas, the members of Hawfields Church did everything 
possible to make this Presbytery meeting comfortable by providing a 
delightful midday repast, soft cushions in the pews, and clean 
globes on the sanctuary chandelier; and, 

Whereas, we were able to say, "Farewell", to Carter Shelley, 
not "Goodbye", "That's just it, why don't we?" to the Bicentennial 
Fund, and "Amen" to the many enthralling and confronting speakers 
who gave us good reason to appreciate the soft cushions; and, 

Whereas, we celebrated the beginnings and endings of ministry, 
and received the Communion of the Lord's Supper deep in our hearts 
and souls and thereby proclaimed our community interdependence; and, 

Therefore, be it resolved, that those in attendance of the 
Fourteenth Stated Meeting of Salem Presbytery offer thanks to God, 
to Rudy Boone for his leadership, and Hawfields Presbyterian Church 
for the wonderful day. 



There being no further business, the Fourteenth Stated Meeting of Salem 
Presbytery was adjourned at 4:42 p.m. with prayer by the Moderator.

RACIAL ETHNIC COMMITTEE 
Sam Stevenson, Moderator 



Concerning Racial Ethnic Presbytery Associate Position: 
Several facts seem to be true: 

1. The presence of a strong, unified, racial minority in Salem Presbytery 
is one of the gifts God has given us to strengthen both the minority and 
the majority churches and Christians in our Presbytery. 

2. The racial ethnic leadership in our Presbytery is stretched very thin by 
a combination of the demands of the local church, their community, the 
Presbytery and their individual participation in the broader issues of 
racism and the other "isms". 

3. The same leadership is in positions of responsibility in the Black 
Caucus, Women of Color, Racial Ethnic Committee (several :of these on 
both local and churchwide levels ) . Each of these has a responsibility 
for the development of Black Leadership, the coordination of efforts 
toward strengthening Black and Korean churches generally, and addressing 
such specific, critical issues as the plight of the young black male. 

4. Many of our racial ethnic churches are severely limited in the resources 
available to them for pursuing their various ministries so that 
maintaining the sense of connectedness with other racial ethnic churches 
and/or pastors becomes a major effort. 

5. A number of black leaders both ministers and elders are experiencing 
significant over commitment if not burnout. 



116 



THEREFORE , there is the critical need for someone with specific training and 
experience, especially in the Black community, to be a catalyst for helping to 
marshall and focus the resources of Salem Presbytery to strengthen the ministry 

and service of all our racial ethnic congregations as well as to support, 
encourage, and challenge our pastoral leadership (particularly in racial ethnic 
churches) to build and strengthen that ministry. 

This would be a 1/2 time position in cooperation with a small church or other 
appropriate source of income for this pastor. Modeled after the previously 
approved Small Church Specialist position, the person in this position would be 
supervised by John Hand ley who is staff resource for the Racial Ethnic Committee. 

The Racial Ethnic Specialist would work closely with the Small Church and Racial 
Ethnic Committees. She/he would serve as liaison between the structures of Salem 
generally and the racial ethnic pastors and churches particularly. 



TENTATIVE POSITION DESCRIPTION 
FOR 

PART-TIME RACIAL ETHNIC SPECIALIST 

- liaison between and among racial ethnic churches as well as with all other 
"elements" of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and to nurture and support 
these connections 

- affirm the strengths of racial ethnic churches and seek reduction of racism 

- lay leader development in racial ethnic churches 

- identify appropriate resources that are ethnically sensitive 

- daily prayer for churches/pastors of Salem 
Budget $20,000 (included in the 1993 Budget) 



RECOMMENDATION : 

That the part-time Racial Ethnic Specialist, including the Position 
Description, be approved and that Council appoint a sub-committee to 
fill the position with recommendation back to Presbytery before 
implementation . 

NOTE: Salem Presbytery's action on this recommendation is included in the 
action regarding the Overture from the Pine Hall Session (see page 113 
of these Minutes ) . 



PERSONNEL COMMITTEE 
Rosa Yourse, Moderator 

Rosa Yourse introduced the Candidate for the Associate for Care and Development 
of Leadership, the Reverend Dr. A. Michael Warren, and he spoke briefly to the 
Presbytery. Ms. Yourse made the following report: 

Your Committee has met four times since the last Presbytery meeting. We have 
reviewed 67 packets of personal/professional information. Those who submitted 
forms included: 13 women and 54 men — all ordained ministers; 1 African-American 
and 66 Caucasians; 42 either now hold or are in the process of receiving earned 
doctoral degrees; 10 are serving presently in North Carolina, the remainder 
represent 23 other states (most distant from Minnesota) . 

We felt both blessed and troubled by the high caliber of those who offered for 
the position. The majority were well qualified by both training and experience 
relevant to the position, as well as by depth of commitment to Christ and His 



117 



Church. Consequently, we had real difficulty in deciding between persons with 
such rich and faithful qualifications. We are encouraged and excited for the 
future of the Church that so many dedicated leaders are available I 

With that background, your Personnel Committee is enthusiastic in presenting the 
Reverend Doctor Arthur Michael ("Mike") Warren of Huntington, WV, to be the Salem 
Presbytery Associate for Care and Development of Leadership. 



Brief Biographical Statement ; 

Mike Warren was born in Charleston, WV, March 22, 1940, the son of Seibert Earl 
and Genevieve Downing Warren. He was educated in the public schools. Mike 
writes, "I am grateful for the small rural congregations in the West Virginia 
coal fields which were the source of my faith as a youth." He graduated from 
Marshall University the year after he married Helen Kathryn Rollins in 1961. 
They have two children, Sheryl Lynn and Robert Michael. 

Union Seminary in Virginia awarded his first theological degree in 1965 just 
before his ordination by Appomattox Presbytery July 15, 1965. There he served 
the Massies Mill, Tyro, and Harmony Churches. In 1966 he answered the call of 
the Liberty and Unity Churches in South Mississippi where he served until 1970. 
It was then back to West Virginia to serve the Elk Hills Church in Charleston. 
In 1975 he began his present pastorate at the Beverly Hills Church in Huntington, 
WV. Helen is a 1st Grade teacher of inner city children. 

Mike has been an active presbyter, particularly in the more than 20 years in West 
Virginia Presbytery (formerly Greenbrier). He summarizes his work and attraction 
to this new call: "I have experience in most of the nine areas of responsibility 
in the Position Description and find the possibility of devoting my energies to 
care of church professionals most exciting. I have always enjoyed the pastoral 
ministry, and my ministry at Beverly Hills has vitality after seventeen years. 
Service on the Committee on Ministry has strengthened my conviction that the 
relationship of professional leadership to the congregation is the most important 
relationship in the Presbyterian Church. I believe the Lord is calling me to 
devote my skills and love for the pastoral ministry to assist ministers and other 
church professionals in their work with congregations as they strive to fulfill 
the mission of Christ's body, the Church." 

NOTE: Action was delayed until the Presbytery could hear from the Bills and 
Overtures Committee. See page 121 for final action. 



REPORT OF GENERAL ASSEMBLY COMMISSIONERS 

Presbytery heard reports of the Commissioners to the " 204th General Assembly 
concerning the issues considered by this year's Assembly. Through "talk show" 
format, they reported on the following major issues: Boy Scouts, Declaration of 
Faith; Problem Pregnancy and Abortion; Ordination; Call System; Tobacco; 
Environment; explained what YADs are, what they do and the opinion of General 
Assembly through the YAD's eyes.

OVERTURE TO SALEM PRESBYTERY 

FROM: The Session 

Pine Hall Presbyterian Church 
Pine Hall, NC 



118 



Whereas: Salem Presbytery is now five years old and is still in the process 
of developing its own style of ministry in this geographical region 
of North Carolina; and, 

Whereas: The staff of Salem Presbytery has for these past five years been 
diligent and faithful in its shepherding of the congregations under 
its care, in spite of the size of the Presbytery geographiclly and 
number ically; and, 

Whereas: Salem Presbytery consists of 157 congregations, of which over one- 
half are 150 members or less, and thirty-one of these need 
Presbytery; s financial support; and, 

Whereas: These small membership congregations have needs and expectations 
which require special sensitivity, skills and attention; and, 

Whereas: A significant number of these congregations consist of racial/ethnic 
members which need representation at Presybytery level for their 
growth and nurture; and, 

Whereas: Our staff associate for Care and Leadership has resigned to pursue 
additional education; 

Therefore: In the spirit of Evangelism and in the will of Christ, we recommend 
that the staff position which has been vacated be divided into four 
positions in the following manner: 

One half-time Staff Associate for Racial/Ethnic Congregational 
Nurture, who is also the pastor on a half-time basis for a small 
racial/ethnic congregation within the Presbytery. 

Three Small Church Development Staff Associates who will 
facilitate the growth of small congregations in their respective 
geographical areas, and pastor a small congregation on a three- 
quarter time basis.

That the second item of the Overture after "Therefore" be referred to 
Council for hearing, study, and recommendation to Presbytery at its 
February, 1993, meeting.

ADMINISTRATIVE SERVICES DIVISION 



BUDGET AND FINANCE COMMITTEE 
John Milholland, Moderator 

1992 Financial Update ; To-date we have pledged benevolence income of 
$1,901,499.44 for 1992; an additional $25,000 in program generated income is 
anticipated for a total of $1,926,699.14. The approved 1992 expense budget is 
$2,057,200; this represents a negative balance of $130,501, 52% ($67,860) of 
which has a direct bearing on Salem Presbytery's budget. Committees are being 
asked to be very conscientious in keeping spending to a bare minimum. 

1993 Requested Budget ; During the April Program hearing, we heard our committees 
ask for $1,249,142; this represents a 15.5 % increase over the 1992 budget. We 
fell that this is an unobtainable goal based on the giving in previous years. 

1993 Askings Budget : Budget and Finance Committee and Presbytery Council are 
asking that an increase of 5% in benevolence giving be approved for 1993. (In 
1991 Presbytery approved a plan whereby churches giving below the average of 
churches of similar size would increase their giving to this level over a period 
of three years, 1993 is the last year in this cycle. Most churches have 
responded to this request positively; we will continue our efforts to bring all 
churches in compliance.) 

1993 Budget ; The budget presented is the result of a building process which 
included a program hearing where committees of Presbytery come to share with our 
committee and Presbytery Council their program outline and budget requests for 
the coming year, and a budget hearing where, based on the program hearing, 
Council and Budget and Finance Committee are able to develop a proposed budget 
for the coming year. 



ACTIONS : 

6. Presbytery approved the Proposed 1993 Salem Presbytery Budget in the 
amount of $2,034,464 (Appendix D, pp. 142-152). 

7. Presbytery approved a 5% increase in Askings (Benevolence) for 1993. 

8. Presbytery approved a reallocation of percentages for Benevolence 
distribution as follows: 

General Assembly - 28% (from 29.5%) 

Synod - 16.5% (from 18.5%) 

Presbytery - " 55.5% (from 52%)

122 



b. His credo which follows was approved: 

My faith rests upon my belief in a sovereign God who 
creates, redeems, and sustains his creation, and who calls a 
people from among the peoples, establishing with them an 
everlasting covenant of grace. God reveals himself to us in at 
least three ways, referred to, traditionally, as the Trinity. 
God is seen in his creation; the handiwork of the creator is 
evident in the beauty and splendor of the world about us, and in 
the mysteries and remarkable laws that maintain and sustain the 
natural order. God is seen most fully in the revelation of the 
Word-made-flesh, Jesus of Nazareth, the Messiah, and only Son of 
God, in whom we see love, compassion, grace, mercy, 
righteousness, justice and peace personified. In him, we see 
true humanity, and we find ourselves falling far short of that 
standard. We are judged guilty of sin, and would be worthy only 
of punishment, were it not for the saving grace of our Lord and 
Savior, Jesus Christ. His sacrifice upon the cross reveals the 
length and depth of God's love for his people; and the 
resurrection of Jesus reveals God's forgiveness, and his power 
over sin and death. This gift of grace is offered to all who 
will accept it. Sadly, not all do accept it, thereby cutting 
themselves off from the source of life itself. 

God reveals himself to us through the Holy Spirit, who 
intervenes in the life of human beings, influencing them at 
precise moments of time, and thereby changing the course of 
human history. God's Spirit acts in the world to bring about 
the fulfillment of God's plan for salvation and reconciliation. 
God's Holy Spirit touches us in prayer, meditation, and also in 
times of Christian service, as we feed the hungry, clothe the 
naked, give drink to those who thirst, bring comfort to the sick 
and suffering, lift the fallen, guide the sightless, free the 
oppressed, visit the imprisoned and comfort those who grieve. 

I believe that God blesses his children in many special 
ways, giving (for example), grace, mercy, and peace through the 
sacraments of baptism and the Lord's Supper. Through baptism, 
we participate in his death and resurrection, and accept them as 
our very own. Our Lord is present when his friends gather about 
his table to share the elements of his life, namely the bread 
and wine. He feeds the believer with the bread of life and the 
cup of forgiveness. 

I believe that God speaks to us in and through the words of 
the Bible, which conveys to us both the faith and the failures 
of the people of God in past ages. These words remind us of how 
God repeatedly sought (and seeks) to restore them (and us) to 
the Covenant community. 

The mission of the church in our time is to both proclaim 
and demonstrate the good news of God's love, as we have 
experienced it in Jesus Christ; to serve as the living body of 
Jesus Christ in the world today; to be the bearer of his Grace 
to the world, and to remember that we have not ourselves arrived 
at an acceptable (to God) level of goodness that allows us to 
relax our vigilance. We are to remember that we are still 
sinners (through forgiven sinners), and that God continues to 
pursue us, to demonstrate to us the steadfastness of His love, 
and to continue to teach us of his way for us. As Christians we 
are called to be an active part of his church, serving 
faithfully and obediently, all of our lives; and we are to find 
joy and thanksgiving so to do. God has been gracious to me a 
sinner, all my life. Thanks be to God. On these beliefs, I 
stake my life and my calling.

relationship between Mr. Moss and the Thyatira Presbyterian

RECEPTION OF A. MICHAEL WARREN 



ACTION: 

10. Presbytery approved the committee and floor examination of A. 
Michael Warren in accordance with Book of Order G-11.0402. 

a. The Reverend A. Michael Warren was received from West Virginia 
Presbytery, pending receipt of his certificate of dismissal, for 
the purpose of accepting the call from Salem Presbytery to be 
the Associate Presbyter for Care and Development of Leadership. 

The effective date is September 1, 1992. Mr. Warren is a 
graduate of Marshall University and Union Seminary in Virginia 
and has served pastorates in West Virginia and Mississippi. 

b. His credo which follows was approved: 

God is creator and sovereign of all life. Scripture 
reveals that all human beings are created to be in loving 
relationship with God. Scripture teaches that each of us 
forsakes this loving relationship by exerting our own will over 
God's and blaming others or external conditions for our actions. 
We deserve death for our rebellion but God pursues us and offers 
us restoration. 

The first offer of restoration was the covenant established 
with Abraham and Sarah. Even though none of their descendants 
were able to fulfill their covenant responsibility, the 
steadfast love of God remained constant. The exodus and 



124 



possession of the promised land also revealed God's will to be 
that human beings live together in common devotion to God and in 
harmony with each other. The Ten Commandments and subsequent 
laws were God's gracious gifts for the ordering of life in the 
new age. Individual and corporate rebellion to God's 
faithfulness continually exerted itself distorting the 
harmonious community and causing loss of the land, bringing 
about bondage to human willfulness. 

God came to us in Jesus Christ who was both human and 
divine. His life was demonstration of a human life obediently 
lived according to the design of the creator. The sovereign 
power of the universe was revealed to be a loving parent seeking 
restoration of wayward children, not an austere tyrant seeking 
injury to enemies. The teachings of Jesus and his companionship 
with the disciples were demonstrations of human community life 
when lived under God's reign. Victims were comforted, the poor 
were served and outcasts were welcomed into the community. 
Forgiveness and reconciliation, rather than divisive 
distinctions between people, were revealed to be the nature of 
a community when God reigns. 

Individual and corporate willfulness again rejected God's 
way and put Christ to death on the cross. God raised Jesus from 
the dead demonstrating the supremacy of love over hate and 
forgiveness over revenge. Christ's resurrection became an 
invitation for all humankind to die to human willfulness and 
receive a new life which we cannot give to ourselves; a new life 
received as a gift through faith in Christ and the sustaining 
presence of the Holy Spirit. 

The Holy Spirit has come to comfort, nurture, challenge, 
and empower us in our daily attempts to live in the new covenant 
of Christ. The Holy Spirit has come to draw us together into 
the church which is Christ's body in the world. Demonstration 
of the forgiveness, reconciliation and destruction of dividing 
walls between people which Christ lived and taught are the gifts 
from God which the church has been commissioned to live in the 
world. 

The church demonstrates new life in Christ as it gathers to 
worship, to praise the one God and to celebrate the sacraments. 
In Baptism we are claimed by God's love in which sin is forgiven 
and new life is given. In the Lord's Supper we remember 
Christ's death for us, celebrate the gift of forgiveness and the 
presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives. 

In response to God's gracious gifts, we go into the world 
empowered by the Holy Spirit for mission. We work to restore 
the world of peace and justice which God designed into the 
fabric of the universe at creation. We hold others in the 
esteem we receive. Knowing that God loves us and redeems us not 
only makes us sisters and brothers in Christ, it is the highest 
possible estimation of human value. 

c. Mr. Warren was instructed to sign the obligations required of a 
minister to be enrolled in Presbytery. 



REPORT OP THE COMMITTEE ON MINISTRY 
Laura Spangler, Moderator 

Jud Milam reported for the Committee. The Committee On Ministry is currently 
formulating the guidelines for Pastor Nominating Committees and the search

policy of Presbytery: (Note: this policy has been in effect on a 
trial basis since 1990.) 

Ordinarily meals are considered an individual's responsibility

accommodations also are ordinarily by individuals unless the 
committee's schedule precludes returning home overnight. Other 
exceptions are: 

Youth Committee 

Staff Entertainment of ministers/others 
New Minister's Orientation 



ACTION: 

26. Presbytery approved the following action concerning Salem Office 
Building with Clemmons Church: 

RESOLUTION CONCERNING SALEM OFFICE BUILDING WITH CLEMMONS CHURCH 

Whereas, the Clemmons Church and Salem Presbytery have explored 
carefully the possibility of entering a joint building project which 
would include office space for Salem Presbytery; and, 

Whereas , the architect's drawing and subsequent cost estimates have 
now clarified the costs of the project to the Presbytery; and, 

Whereas , Presbytery's participation in this venture is based on 
receiving $270,000 from the Bicentennial Fund which will be neither 
known nor in hand any earlier than 1994; and, 

Whereas, Presbytery's income is holding steady, but is not 
increasing; and, 

Whereas, comparing the costs to Presbytery's budget of our present 
office arrangements with the costs projected for the joint venture 
has revealed that Salem Presbytery would be placed in a 
disadvantageous position; 

Therefore , be it resolved that Salem Presbytery thank the Clemmons 
Church for its generosity and patience in negotiating on this 
project and affirm their exciting plans to proceed with their 
building needs; and, 

That the specific proposal for a joint project be withdrawn and 
decisions regarding the possibility of building Salem Offices 
referred back to the Council for future recommendations.

CHURCH DEVELOPMENT DIVISION 



CHURCH DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE 
Bill Hylton, Moderator 

The Church Development Committee of Salem Presbytery has as a goal the beginning 
of three (3) new churches in the next five years. We contracted with James 
Earhart in 1991 to do a comprehensive study of the presbytery with the aim of 
uncovering and codifying "hot spots" of population growth. One of the strongest 
growth areas in our Presbytery, as indicated in the demographic study, is the 
North/Northwestern Greensboro area. 

Funds to cover the cost of New Church Development in Salem Presbytery will be 
shared with the regular budget of Presbytery, funds from antecedent presbyteries, 
local funds, and bi-centennial funds. 

Following the April 24, 1992, approval by Presbytery, the Church Development 
Committee on May 28, 1992, closed on a 6.38 acre tract of land located on highway 
150 in Oak Ridge, North Carolina, at a cost of $205,000. In addition to the 
acreage are two buildings and a mobile home. The Steering Committee is working 
hard in furthering the development of NCD project. (See the attached proposal 
for the NCD program Grant through the office of General Assembly, Appendix F, pp. 
154-166. ) 

Fulfilling our commitment to purchase the land on which to build a church for the 
ne Korean congregation, we closed on the Stagecoach Road, Greensboro, NC, 
property on June 4. The purchase price for the 5.2 acre site was $100,000. 

We continue to explore the needs of Church Development in Salem Presbytery; we 
remind you that the continued commitment on the part of the whole body is needed 
if this (Church Development) is to be a successful endeavor. 



ACTION: 

27. Presbytery approved the Mission Development Grant Proposal to be 
submitted to the Evangelism and Church Development Ministry Unit for 
a total of $115,000.

Salem Overtures to the 204th General Assembly 

We have received notice of actions taken on the three Overtures Salem presented 
to the 204th General Assembly as follows: 

Overture 92-95. On the Issue of Tobacco — from the Presbytery of Salem. 

That the overture not be adopted with comment: We realize that people 
of faith differ on this issue, and this is a painful dilemma. We 
realize this makes it next to impossible for any of us to offer any 
objective advice on this issue. However, we affirm past General 
Assembly actions. 



132 



Overture 92-96. On Clarifying the Church's Desire to Accept Money 
Generated From the Tobacco Industry — From the Presbytery of Salem. 

That the overture be adopted. 

Overture 92-97. On Funding of Environmental Justice and Stewardship — 
From the Presbytery of Salem. 

That the overture be answered by action taken in Overture 92-90. 
(Overture 92-90 was adopted as amended with comment. See enclosed copy 
of amended overture with accompanying comment.) 

Overture 92-95 offered to Salem Presbytery by the Speedwell Church was carefully 
discussed by the Commissioner's Committee on Justice and Social Issues. The 
Overture requested "suspension of the 199th and 202nd General Assembly's action 
on tobacco until the above questions can be resolved." The vote of the Committee 
to "not adopt" was 26 for, 15 against, and 3 abstentions. There was little 
debate on the Assembly floor. It was clear that a number of the Committee heard 
the concern over the economic affects of moving away from a tobacco dominated 
economy in many communities in our Presbytery. They were sensitive to the same 
problem in communities whose economy is significantly tied to the growing and 
production of alcoholic beverages, as well as, manufacture of offensive weaponry. 
They heard the values conflict over the implications for the family farms in our 
area. Questions referred also to whether money given to the church from tobacco 
related profits were wanted and the use of investments as a social policy 
strategy. It was clear that health related concerns were the main issues. 

Overture 92-96 offered to Salem by the First Church, Reidsville, asked the 
Assembly "to make clarification and give direction as to whether the General 
Assembly desires to accept money and gifts generated directly or indirectly from 
the tobacco industry." The same Committee discussed this request and thought it 
should be answered. They felt that the nature of their task and the need to 
develop a theological framework in which to give an answer made it impossible for 
them to answer adequately. However, they gave no instruction or offered any 
procedure for the "clarification" to be given. The Committee's vote was 43/0/1 
to adopt the Overture. 

I have discussed these matters with members of several of our churches whose 
desire for some further discussion and clarification is both sincere and 
respectful. The General Assembly structure will be reminded that an answer was 
called for in Milwaukee. However, I believe that we need further dialogue and 
interpretation within our presbytery on these painful, divisive issues. Some of 
our sessions have studied the North Carolina Council of Churches booklet 
entitled, "Moral Dimensions of Tobacco", presented in 1984. There are other 
documents and actions which help in grappling meaningfully with the complexities 
of these concerns. There are many in our churches who are seeking thoughtful, 
clear, and faithful answers. The following recommendation is in that context. 



ACTION: 

29. Salem Presbytery authorized the Moderator, in consultation with the 
Social Justice Committee and the Stated Clerk, to appoint a Tobacco 
Issues Study Committee to provide opportunities within our bounds 
for study, discussion, and clarification of the concerns voiced and 
the issues raised by Salem Overtures 92-95 and 92-96; and to 
continue dialogue with the General Assembly on the implications of 
faithful responses to such issues. 



Overture 92-97 concerning "funding of environmental justice and stewardship" was 
answered by adopting Overture 92-90, amended, with two "comments". 92-90 is 
identical in working to 92-97 which Salem sent. The Assembly's action changed 
only the last paragraph by adopting the following comments: 



133 



Comment: Should not the Environmental Justice Program Working Plan make 
provision for an ongoing program group on Environmental Justice that 
would have churchwide representation, to communicate concerns and needs 
from congregations and middle governing bodies, and to share in the 
development and implementation of the Environmental Justice Program? 

Comment: We affirm and appreciate the strategy, "Environmental Justice 
Program Working Plan, " of the Social Justice and Peacemaking Ministry- 
Unit for the year 1993, and urge cooperation with the completion of that 
endeavor . 

We recognize the fiscal constraint confronting the church, but we also 
note that seven overtures came to this assembly urging greater funding, 
which indicates a desire on the part of the church to be more active in 
environmental matters. 

In response to this direction from the church, we strongly urge the 
Social Justice and Peacemaking Ministry Unit to fully implement the 
mandate of the 202nd General Assembly (1990) no later than 1994, which 
noted the need for at least one person working full-time in Louisville 
to carry out education and leadership development, participation and 
organization, as well as program effort coordination in the denomination 
and ecumenically. 

In addition we recommend that: (1) the Social Justice and Peacemaking 
Ministry Unit emphasize environmental justice in promotion of the 
Peacemaking Offering and advise churches that the 25 percent local 
portion of the offering may be designated for the national environmental 
program; and (2) the office of environmental justice be asked to relate 
the environmental crisis to the continuing pattern of population growth.

resolution. 



ACTION: 

30. Presbytery approved the following resolution and included it in the 
Minutes of this Fifteenth Stated Meeting of Salem Presbytery: 



RESOLUTION OF THANKS 

There once was a Presbytery called Salem, 

who knew their faith would never fail 'em. 

When they came in the July heat 

to North Wilkesboro to meet 

and wonderful hosts were there to hail 'em. 

Our theme presenters on Congregational Life 
with not ready for prime time actors, 
brought vividly alive all church factors. 

The nineteen building blocks 
almost knocked us off our socks. 

We bought land in order to expand. 
And when we learned we had a YAD, 
we knew things weren't all that bad. 

In that spirit we submit the following resolution: 

Whereas, the Rev. Cindy Higgins moved us through a full agenda 
with wisdom and dispatch; and 

Whereas, John Handley's moving sermon within the service of 
Holy Communion brought us face to face with the Living Christ; and 



135 



Whereas, we are indebted to Rev. Wei ton Seal, Pastor, First 
Baptist Church, North Wilkesboro, for enriching our ecumenical 
awareness; and 

Whereas; the congregation of North Wilkesboro Presbyterian 
church provided us with cool mountain air inside the building along 
with a pleasant and delightful meal, refreshments, and facilities; 
and 

Whereas, we rejoice in the commissioning of Charles and Marian 
Cameron as Volunteers in Mission; and 

Whereas, we rejoice in the reception of our new Associate 
Presbyter for Care and Development of Leadership, Rev. Mike Warren, 
and Rev. Steve Moss and Rev. Tom Lane who will minister among us; 
and 

Whereas, our commissioners to the 204th General Assembly and 
our commissioners to the Synod of the Mid-Atlantic reported in such 
a lively and fresh way, we felt we were there; 

For all these many blessings and more, we give praise to God 
with thanksgiving. 



There being no further business, the Fifteenth Stated Meeting of Salem Presbytery 
was adjourned at 4:03 p.m. with prayer by the Vice-Moderator.

What factors stimulated the need for new church development in this 

community at this time? 

The Presbytery recognized a population frontier where 
there has been no Presbyterian Church presence and an 
area in which a great deal of new residential construc- 
tion has taken place. 



How does this particular new church development implement the 
mission goals and objectives of the Presbytery and the Synod?

The Steering Committee is comprised of seven members who 
represent these churches: 

Fellowship Presbyterian, First Pres (Greensboro) , £, 
6uilford Park Pres, Westminister Pres, and ^ 
Starmount Presbyterian 
Describe any unique characteristics about their involvement in the 
p I ann i ng process. 

First Presbyterian Church made a grand gift of $100,000 
earmarked for a new church about 10 years ago which has 
been held by Presbytery. Salem Presbytery has purchased 
the property and buildings thereon at a cost of $205,000. 
Bill Hylton, Moderator of CDC, and Sam Zealy, Chair of 
the Steering Committee are both real estate brokers and 
negotiated the purchase of the property without fee or 
compensation. Mr. Owen Cooke on the Steering Committee is 
and attorney who prepared legal documents and did al I 
legal work at no charge--PRO BONO, on the purchase of the- 
property. 

Is there a nucleus of persons who are prospective charter members 
of the newly developing congregation ? By whom were they identi- 
fied? By whom were they gathered? How were they involved in the 
planning and development of the new church? How did they express 
their interest and need for this new church. If they have signed 
a covenant agreement, attach a copy. 

Three members of the Steering Committee are keenly inter- 
ested in being charter members. The Committee members 
are identifying members of the neighboring churches who M 
live in the geographic area of the church site. A list W 
of 51 families who live in the immediate area of the site 
have been supplied by the area Presbyterian churches. 
These church members are being contacted about the new 
church and their interest is beins cultivated. IMone have 

signed a cos'enant agreement yet.

. DESCRIPTION OF NEW CHURCH DEVELOPMENT: 

What is the historical background of this project? 

In the fall of 1933, Orange Presbytery ordered a study 
by James Earhart of Church P I ann i ng-Consu I t at i on s . This 
study identified the northwest part of Guilford County 
as "ripe" for initiation of development of a new church. 
A committee was formed and searched around the airport 
area and later disbanded without recommending a site. 
First Presbyterian in Greensboro made a gift to Presbytery 
of $10 0,000 to be used in new church development. 
A little later Presbytery asked a tentmaker pastor to 
search in the northwest for interested potential members 
and he accumulated a dozen families and reported them 
to Presbytery. They were in the nearby community of 
Summerfield. Again in 1991, James Earhart was authorized 
to study the whole area again and the unincorporated area 
of Oak Ridge was placed on top priority for a new church. 
) The New Church Development held a meeting inviting all 
Presbyterian Churches in the Greensboro area. Their sup- 
port was solicited and they were encouraging to the CDC. 
In the fall of 1991 a Steering Committee was formed and 
soon found a tract of land. This was optioned and 
later purchased by Presbytery. The Committee is searching 
for a minister whom we feel will come on the field and be- 
gin visiting and holding services in the early fall '92. 



156 



Has the need for this new church been validated by research? Mhe A 
was the research done? What kind of data was sathered? Who con- W 
ducted the research? Describe the relevant findings, such as num- 
bers of people, age, racial/ethnic populations, economic strength, 
that are occur i ng/wi I I occur in the area to be served by the new 
.-church? Make particular note of the population gr o w t h / de c I i n e of 
area to be served over the last five years. Note the population 
growth/decline in the area to be served over the next three years. 
Attached a copy of the study to this proposal. Also attached are 
sheets of data from 1990 census. 

A copy of study made by James Earhart (CHURCH PLANNING 
CONSULTANTS GROUP) is attached , completed in 1991. 
The 1990 US Census as provided by Anne Murphy, Director 
Information and Data Services of the Piedmont Triad Coun- 
cil of Governments describes two primary census tracts, 
# 158 and # 159 and a subdivided tract, 4 160.01 as our 
geographic area. In the three tracts, there are nearly 
13,000 persons. The white population numbers 91 %, African 
American is 8 V. and other is 1 % . While it seems the grow- 
ing popluation is somewhat affluent, the Census Bureau has 
not yet released incomes in this area from the 1990 
census . 

One tract showed a growth of 28X in the last 

decade and figures for the other two are not available. 

Twenty five percent are under age of 18. The families 

with no children slightly outnumber those with chi I dren r 

The age of persons seem to fall primarily in the 25-54 

range. 

Several small tracts of land within one mile are now being 
developed into residential neighborhoods with building 
taking place in homes above $200,000 in value. 

What are the particular needs and conditions of people to be 
served? What is the approximate average family income of the peo- 
ple who will be part of this new church development^ 



It seems that the majority of persons are in families 
and about half have children. Fellowship and ministry to 
families needs will be high on our priorities. Because w? 
feel (figures not available, however) these families are 
middle and upper income in nature, a program which will 
respond in outreach to these active individuals in Christ- 
ian Education and Christian service will be important. 



What other congregations in the specified area have similar goals 
to this newly developing congregation? What are their memberships, 
locations, and distances from the site of this new congregation? 

First Baptist of Oak Ridge is one half mile west on Oak 
Ridge Road. This is an Independent Baptist Church with 4k 
120 members. The membership is primarily African Amer i ™ 
can. 



157 



Oak Ridge United Methodist is slightly more than one half 
mile west on Oak Ridge Road. Its membership is 530. 

Moravia Moravian Church is one mile to- the east on Oak 
Ridge Road and numbers 160 in size. 

Community Lutheran Church is a 139 member church begun 
in the fall of '90 when the Evangelical Lutheran Church in 
America (ELCA) placed a pastor in the field to invite peo- 
ple to worship in temporary quarters. Their yet to be de- 
veloped site is just over four miles to the east in Sum- 
merfield. They are meeting at a store building in Summer- 
field and had their first worship service in February '91.

APPENDIX G 



PERMANENT JUDICIAL COMMISSION 
SALEM PRESBYTERY 

July 1, 1992 



JOHN E. BOLTON, JR., Complainant 
vs . 

ALAMANCE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH, Respondent • 
Alleged Irregularity I 

The congregation of Alamance Presbyterian Church took no action to indicate that 
it wanted to fill the position of Associate Pastor on the staff of the church. 
Instead, the Session of the church took action toward filling the position by 
calling a congregational meeting for the purpose of electing an Associate Pastor 
Nominating Committee. 

Findi ngs : 

a. There is a long-standing tradition in Alamance Presbyterian Church of having 
an Associate Pastor. 

b. The "Covenant Between Senior Pastor and Alamance Presbyterian Church," 
which was extended to Lucius A. Gray when he was called as Pastor to Alamance 
Presbyterian Church and which was approved by the congregation of the church on 
December 15, 1985, states that "(t)he administration portion of the Covenant 
calls for a professional staff of at least one associate minister and one other 
full-time church prof essional This Covenant is still in effect. 

c. The congregation of Alamance Presbyterian Church, at the congregational 
meeting on January 5, 1992, did not raise the issue of formal action to express 
its desire Co call an Associate Pastor. Further, the congregation voted to 
elect an Associate Pastor Nominating Committee. 

The Permanent Judicial Commission acknowledges that no formal action was taken 
by the congregation of Alamance Presbyterian Church to express its desire to 
call an Associate Pastor, but the existing tradition and past actions of the 
congregation as well as the actions taken at the congregational meeting on 
January 5, 1992, imply consent to call an Associate Pastor. 

Dec ision ; 

The Permanent Judicial Commission does not sustain the complaint of 
Irregularity I. 



167 



Alleged Irregularity II 



The Session of Alamance Presbyterian Church does not have auchority to establish 
any mechanism for providing a slate of nominees to the proposed Associate 
Pastor Nominating Committee for consideration by the congregation. 

Fi ndi ngs : 

a. According to the Book of Order G-10. 0102b, it is the responsibility and 
power of the Session "to lead the congregation in participation in the mission 
of the whole Church in the world, in accordance with G-3.0000." 

b. Even though the Book of Order does not specifically mandate that the Session 
establish a nominating committee to provide a slate of nominees to present to 
the congregation for election to the Associate Pastor Nominating Committee, the 
action taken by the Session in charging the existing Elder/Deacon Nominating 
Committee with the responsibility of providing such a slate is in accord with 
the breadth of responsibility and power granted to the Session by G-10. 0102. 

The Permanent Judicial Commission finds that the Session of Alamance 
Presbyterian Church does have authority to establish the mechanism for providing 
a slate of nominees to the Associate Pastor Nominating Committee. 

Dec is ion : 

The Permanent Judicial Commission does not sustain the complaint of 
Irregularity II. 

Alleged Irregularity III 

The Elder/Deacon Nominating Committee did not have authority to present to the 
congregation of Alamance Presbyterian Church a slate of nominees to serve as the 
Associate Pastor Nominating Committee. 

Findings : 

a. The Session of Alamance Presbyterian Church has the responsibility and the 
power to establish a mechanism for providing a slate of nominees to serve as 
the Associate Pastor Nominating Committee (see II above) and so instructed the 
1991 Elder/Deacon Nominating Committee (referred to in the November 17, 1991, 
minutes of the Session as the 1991 Officer Nominating Committee.) 

b. The Elder/Deacon Nominating Committee had been selected by the Session, the 
Diaconate and the congregation in accord with Book of Order G-14. 0202b and was 
itself representative of the active membership of Alamance Presbyterian Church. 

The Permanent Judicial Commission recognize's that the use of the individuals 
who served on the 1991 Elder/Deacon Nominating Committee to provide a slate of 
nominees to the Associate Pastor Nominating Committee is not the sole mechanism 
that could be utilized; however, the use of the seven members of said committee 
is proper and in order. 

Decis ion : 

The Permanent Judicial Commission does not sustain the complaint of 
Irregularity III. 

168 



Alleged Irregularity IV 



The Session unduly restricted the congregation in the nominating process in the 
following ways: 

A. Members could not nominate other members of the congregation unless the 
nominee had previously indicated he/she would serve if elected. 

Findings : 

a. The "Proposed Revisions to the Structure and Functions of a Nominating 
Committee for the Election of Elders and Deacons," approved by the congregation 
of Alamance Presbyterian Church on May 13, 1990, requires that "(a)nyone making 
nominat ion( s ) from the floor must obtain consent to serve from the nominee 
before making the nomination." 

b. Section G— 5.0102e of the Book of Order expresses an understanding of the 
responsibility of membership in the Church. It is neither a vow taken nor a 
part of one's profession of faith. Participation in the governing responsibil- 
ities of the Church may include, but does not require, serving an office in the 
church. 

The Permanent Judicial Commission finds that the nominating policy of Alamance 
Presbyterian Church is not unduly restrictive and is in order. 

Dec i s ion : 

The Permanent Judicial Commission does not sustain the complaint of 
Irregularity IV A. 

B. The Session of Alamance Presbyterian Church required that one member of the 
Associate Pastor Nominating Committee be an elder and one member be a deacon out 
of a total membership of seven on the Committee. 

Findings ; 

a. This was a recommendation, not a requirement, and came from the nominating 
committee, not from the Session. 

b. The congregation was free to make nominations from the floor without 
restriction. This procedure was stated in the minutes of the Session meetings 
on November 17, 1991, and January 5, 1992, and the minutes of the congregational 
meeting on January 5, 1992. 

The Permanent Judicial Commission finds that the recommendation was not 
prejudicial and did not constitute a restriction on fair representation. 

Dec ision : 

The Permanent Judicial Commission does not sustain the complaint of 
Irregularity IV B. 



169 



Alleged Irregularity V 



Alamance Presbycerian Church did not seek permission or guidance from the 
Committee on Ministry of Salem Presbytery prior to the election of the Associate 
Pastor Nominating Committee. 

Findings : 

a. Section G-14.0502 of the Book of Order does not mandate that the congregation 
of the church receive the guidance and permission of the Committee on Ministry 
before the election of the Associate Pastor Nominating Committee. 

b. The letter from Lucius A. Gray to the Session, January 2, 1992, the letter 
from Judson J. Milam, Chair of Committee on Ministry, to Lucius Gray, January 2, 
1992, and the letter from Muriel C. Ward to John Bolton, January 10, 1992, ail 
confirm that Alamance Presbycerian Church was in contact with the Committee on 
Ministry prior to the election of the Associate Pastor Nominating Committee. 
Furthermore, the Committee on Ministry appointed John Barney as liaison between 
the Committee on Ministry and Alamance Presbyterian Church prior to 

January 2, 1992. 

The Permanent Judicial Commission finds that, because the Book of Order does not 
mandate that the Committee on Ministry will be involved in the process to call 
an Associate Pastor before the election of the Associate Pastor Nominating Com- 
mittee, the actions of Alamance Presbyterian Church in the election of the said 
Nominating Committee are in order. 

Decision; 

The Permanent Judicial Commission does not sustain the complaint of 
Irregularity V.
